VELscope:

  The VELscope Vx is the most powerful tool available for assisting in the discovery of oral abnormalities.  The VELscope's distinctive blue-spectrum light causes the soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce. Healthy tissues fluoresce in distinctive patterns - patterns that are visibly disrupted by trauma or disease.  Using the VELscope, a wide variety of oral abnormalities can be discovered - often before they're visible to the unassisted eye.
