A modern dentist needs to know how to do more than just clean your teeth. This is why Overlake’s Bellevue dentist is pleased to offer a selection of other important services, all with the most advanced oral care technology available. It’s all part of our mission to provide our patients with the best in oral care.
VELscope Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is a deadly killer, but is highly treatable if detected early. This is why our Bellevue dentist makes regular use of sophisticated cancer screening technology as a part of your regular visits. Dr. Yu and Dr. Lee offers VELscope Oral Cancer Screening at his practice to perform a much more thorough assessment of your mouth and oral health than conventional cancer screening practices.
The VELscope exam helps us to reliably identify normal and abnormal tissues by visualizing any abnormalities in the mucosal tissues of the lips, mouth, and upper throat within a few minutes. Call us at 425-453-9999 to learn more about the VELscope Oral Cancer Screening process.
Taking good care of your gums is essential for your oral health, even more so than protecting your teeth. After all, it is much easier for us to rebuild teeth than it is to repair lost gum tissue. Many of our patients can benefit from the powerful cleaning effects of Perio Protect®.
This solution works by applying strong anti-bacterial materials to the pockets of your gums with a specially-fitted tray. Most patients only need to wear their tray for a few minutes each day and find the process to be relatively comfortable. The end result is much stronger and healthier gums that are more resilient to tooth decay and other oral health problems.
If you think you might be a good candidate for Perio Protect®, set up an appointment with Dr. Yu or Dr. Lee by calling 425-453-9999 today.
