An area of concern that of course is never pleasant to consider is the reality of oral cancer in our society. This form of cancer is unfortunately on the rise, and in new portions of our population, most likely due to the association of the malignancy with the HPV virus that is so prevalent now. The VELscope provides Dr. Levin with the ability to identify oral disease in its early stages, including oral pre cancer and cancer.
The Intraoral Camera is the newest in advanced technology. It gives unbelievably clear images to help educate the patient in different areas of concern. This is the fastest and most efficient way to diagnose potential problems that may be developing.
Digital x-rays enable Dr. Levin and you to view the image on a computer monitor immediately. It also provides a very accurate view of the tooth while exposing you to 80% less radiation than standard x-rays.
Digital Panoramic X-Rays
Panoramic X-rays show a broad view of the jaws, teeth, sinuses, nasal area, and temporomandibular (jaw) joints. These x-rays show problems such as impacted teeth, bone abnormalities, cysts, solid growths (tumors), infections, and fractures.
