(Newswire.net — April 1, 2014) Chandler, AZ — Impressions Dental in Chandler, Arizona, has enhanced its cancer and tissue abnormality screening capabilities with the acquisition of a VELscope Vx system. Already well-known in the Chandler area for its general and cosmetic dental services, its patients will now benefit from early cancer detection.

The office of one Chandler dentist has taken a huge step toward offering its patients the latest technology in the early detection of pre-cancer, cancer or other diseases of the mouth. Impressions Dental, a leader in offering Arizona residents the most comprehensive general and cosmetic dental services available, has added a VELscope Vx system to provide early oral cancer detection services to its patients.

“Early detection of cancer and other oral diseases increases survival rates, improves the chances of treatment success and helps patients to maintain their quality of life,” according to Dr. Brigham D. Baker, DDS of Impressions Dental. “The VELscope Vx system enhances our ability to examine oral mucosa and detect tissue abnormalities in patients.”

The VELscope Vx system fits very nicely into routine examinations performed by a dentist in Chandler AZ. The system does not require the use of dyes or lengthy procedures and does not prolong the time patients must spend in the dental chair. The VELscope Vx examination takes about two minutes and is performed using only normal lighting conditions. The results of the examination are displayed in format that is bright and easy to read under the lighting usually found in a dental office.

The enhanced cancer screening offered by the VELscope Vx system is just one of the many services Impressions Dental offers to its patients. Other services include crowns, bridges, dental implants, athletic and night mouth guards, dental sealants, specialized exams and services for children and a full complement of cosmetic dentistry services. 

Impressions Dental is the Chandler family dentist residents depend upon for all phases of general and cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Brigham D. Baker, Dr. Tye Thompson and their staff focus on providing the most comfortable dental experience possible for all of their patients. Besides sleep dentistry, in which sedation is used to help anxious or fearful patients to relax and feel at ease during their examination or procedure, patients can expect to find blankets and pillows, wireless headphones, XM radio, free Internet connection, DVDs, scented candles and sugar free cookies.
