Oral Cancer Screenings with OralID
Our office strives to bring it’s patients state-of-the-art technology to provide the latest advancements in oral health. We have recently introduced the OralID screening device into our office. The OralID examination will allow us to visualize any oral mucosal abnormalities including cancer and dysplasia(pre-cancer) before they can be detected with the naked eye. The procedure is quick, painless and no rinses or dyes are used.
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.
