Did you know that oral cancer has a higher death rate than cervical cancer, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, laryngeal cancer, cancer of the testes, thyroid cancer, or skin cancer?
We are pleased to announce that we now offer OralID’s fluorescence technology for use in oral cancer screenings. Oral cancer has an 80-90% survival rate if detected early, but cancer cells can exist below the surface skin layer for two years before they are detectable by the naked eye.1 Using the special OralID light, we are able to detect abnormalities in your mouth that could be a sign of oral cancer. The procedure is quick, painless, and could potentially save your life. Our patients’ health is our top priority, so schedule an appointment today to take advantage of this innovative technology.
