Oral Cancer-Vizilite

THE STAGES OF ORAL CANCER:

Cell Progression

As a cell state progresses from inflammatory to dysplastic to precancerous or cancerous, nuclear DNA proliferates or increases, taking up more of the cell volume. This process results in denser cell nuclei, a change that adjunctive screening technologies are designed to detect in early stages.

The Importance of Early Detection

Early detection impacts the survival rate because it's usually associated with the early stages of cancer: Stages I and II of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and oral pre-malignant lesions (OpL).

We Believe in Your Smile!

YOUR SAFETY IS OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY

At the Smile Centre, we are continually updating our protocols to ensure the absolute safest environment for you and your family to have their dentistry done. We are continually monitoring and implementing all public health recommendations as they are modified.

The good news is that there have currently been no reports of any confirmed cases of COVID-19 transmission associated with dental treatment.

However with the increase in numbers and community spread we are being extra vigilant.

  • COVID-19 screening ALL persons entering the office (patients and staff)
  • Ensuring adequate supplies of advanced PPE
  • Reducing the number of people in the office at one time by staggering appointment times
  • Using advanced filtration systems to eliminate aerosols in the office
  • Utilizing virtual consultation appointments to communicate with you and limit the amount of office visits you require

We are asking our patients to also do their part by wearing masks, sanitizing their hands and letting us know if they have been in contact with anyone who is sick.

We also believe that taking care of your teeth and good preventive dental care has a positive effect on our immune systems and is an important component of your overall health.

Please call or text us if you have any concerns about your oral care or our COVID-19 protocols... we will be happy to help in any way we can.
