Oral Cancer Screening/ViziLite®

SERVING PITTSBURGH, ALLISON PARK, AND THE SURROUNDING AREAS OF PENNSYLVANIA

Oral cancer is an aggressive and deadly form of cancer, and it is not limited to smokers and users of chewing tobacco. In fact, about one quarter of oral cancer victims are considered low-risk, and many oral cancer cases are associated with human papillomavirus (HPV), a common sexually transmitted virus.

Early detection and treatment of oral cancer is extremely important, and Pittsburgh general dentists, Dr. Joe Quartuccio and Dr. Charles Frye of Dentonics conduct a visual and tactile oral cancer assessment on every patient who undergoes a routine exam. We are also proud to offer the ViziLite oral cancer screening for every adult patient.

ViziLite was designed to help dental professionals identify and track abnormal oral lesions for precancerous cells or cancerous cells that are otherwise difficult to detect. Using a specialized solution activated by a low-intensity light, ViziLite makes abnormal, potentially cancerous cells easier to see.

ViziLite oral cancer screening is quick, and it is easy to fit into your regular check-up. The Allison Park, Pennsylvania, dentists at Dentonics encourage adult patients to undergo an oral cancer screening at least once per year.

If you would like to learn more about ViziLite or schedule your oral cancer screening and dental exam, please contact Dentonics to arrange your general dentistry appointment with Dr. Joe Quartuccio or Dr. Charles Frye. We welcome patients from the Pittsburgh or Allison Park, Pennsylvania, areas.
