Even though you take proper care of your dentures at home, a dental professional needs to examine them at least once a year.
This preventive procedure is necessary as it can help identify any problems with your dentures or your oral health before they become worse.
Performing a denture examination will help keep your dentures lasting as long as possible. Your dentures are an important part of your life and therefore require the care and attention they deserve to be long-lasting.
Over time, it is not uncommon for dentures to not fit as well as they used to or start to break. This makes annual denture examinations essential to your good oral health.
The VELscope helps find oral disease early, including precancer and cancer, when it’s easier to treat.
One of the VELscope’s most important tasks is to help locate areas that might, if not treated, progress to oral cancer.

If any abnormalities are found, we will send our findings to a specialist from VELscope and will write you a referral to your doctor.
