Oral Cancer Screening (Oral ID)
We strive to bring you state-of-the-art technology to provide you with the latest advancements in oral health. We have recently introduced the OralID™ screening device to our office.
What Is Oral ID?
A state-of-the-art technology that allows us to detect any oral mucosal abnormality (namely cancer and pre-cancer) before they can be detected with the naked eye.
Why Is It Important?
Similar to other cancers, early detection of Oral Cancer is critical. Studies have shown that early detection of oral cancer with technologies like the OralID™ dramatically improves the survivability of the disease. If oral cancer is detected in its later stages, which typically occurs during a conventional oral cancer exam, the chances of survival are dramatically reduced.
How Does It Benefit You?
- This technology allows for early detection of Oral Cancer, which is critical to improve chances of survivability
- The procedure is quick, painless and no rinses or dyes are used
Who Is At Risk?
- Age 17+ years
- Tobacco users
- Alcohol users
- HPV infection
If you have any questions about risk factors, please feel free to contact us. We recommend all of our patients be screened with the OralID™ to reduce the mortality of late stage detection.
