Zila adds angled mirror to ViziLite

Zila has added an angled exam mirror to its ViziLite Plus oral lesion identification and marking system to enhance dental professionals' ability to see oral lesions during a comprehensive oral cancer screening procedure.

The autoclavable mirror attaches to the top of the ViziLite Plus lightstick retractor, the company said.

"Most of the progress which has been made in the survival rates of all cancers has been through early detection," said Steve Garrett, D.D.S., vice president of clinical development for Tolmar, parent company of Zila, in a press release. "Oral cancer should not hold the high position it does as a killer. When it is caught early, it is 80% to 90% curable."

With the release of the new angled exam mirror, Zila said it hopes to improve the rate of early detection of oral lesions and also underscore the importance of annual oral cancer screenings, especially for at-risk patients.
