April Is Oral Cancer Awareness Month

Our office strives to bring its patients state-of-the-art technology to provide you with the latest advancements in oral health. We introduced the OralID™ screening device into our office a few years back. The OralID examination allows 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.
Who is at Risk?
• Age – 17+ years
• Tobacco Use
• Alcohol Use
• HPV infection
If you have any questions about risk factors, please feel free to talk to our hygiene staff. We recommend all of our patients be screened with the OralID™ to reduce the mortality of late stage detection.
