OralID Oral Cancer Screenings
As with any cancer, early detection and diagnosis is critical to survival. It’s important for patients to see their dentist regularly, especially if they have a history of tobacco or alcohol usage, or have been exposed to the human papilloma virus. HPV, transmitted through saliva, sexual and skin-to-skin contact is the cause of the fastest growing oral cancer population under the age of 45 and is responsible for a 15X increase in oral cancer diagnosis. 25% of all oral cancer patients have no known risk factors.
Oral Cancer Kills One American Every Hour
OralID is a quick and painless non-invasive 2 minute exam that helps us identify oral abnormalities not visible to the naked eye. OralID is a FDA cleared medical device that uses fluorescence “blue light” technology.
