Vizilite - Oral Cancer Screening
Healthy Smilz and their caring team understand the
importance of detecting oral cancer early. If caught early enough, this form of
cancer is one of the most curable.
An annual ViziLite Plus exam, in combination with a
regular visual examination, provides a comprehensive oral screening procedure
for patients at increased risk for oral cancer. The ViziLite Plus exam is
painless and fast, and could help save your life.
ViziLite Plus uses technology that has proven successful
in identifying soft tissue abnormalities in other areas of the body.

Healthy Smilz knows that a picture is worth a
thousand words – especially in dentistry! Healthy Smilz uses small cameras
right inside your mouth to take highly magnified digital photos of your teeth.
These photos can be displayed on a computer screen for both patient and doctor,
and are invaluable in diagnosing and recording dental problems. Intra-oral
photos also enables patients to view what the dentist sees when their teeth are
being evaluated by the dentist.
Laser Cavity Detector (Diagnodent)
Locating hidden decay before it destroys tooth structure (from the inside out)
is a major goal. Finding cavities beneath the hard surfaces is challenging
because the disease process can start through microscopic defects in the hard
surface can spread into the softer tooth structure beneath the surface.
Recently FDA approved, this amazing laser cavity finder instantly and accurately
finds cavities in areas x-rays rarely see and the dental pick misses 76% of the
Diagnodent is a major breakthrough that allows us to monitor the areas below the
hard surfaces. We can now locate hidden decay, and with treatment stop the
spread of the disease before it destroys the tooth from within.
Healthy Smilz understands the importance of evaluating and treating periodontal disease. This is why they use the Florida Probe, a computerized automatic probing and charting system, which is the equivalent of the oral camera in order to convince patients about the existence of periodontal disease. The Florida Probe has proven more reliable and more accurate than standard hand probing methods.
Healthy Smilz is a fully digital and paperless office and is one of the most modern practices in South Carolina.
