Oral cancer is one of the most easily treatable types of cancer when diagnosed early, but like all forms of cancer can be life-threatening if untreated. We encourage you to receive oral cancer screenings regularly so that the disease can be diagnosed in the earliest stages of development. Some common signs of oral cancer include:
- Red or white patches in the mouth
- Persistent ulcers and sores
- Pain in your mouth and throat
- A feeling that something is caught in the back of the throat
OralID is a quick, easy and non-invasive technology for diagnosing oral cancer. This technology uses a fluorescent light technology to differentiate between healthy tissues in your mouth and cancerous or abnormal tissues. The device consists of a special pair of glasses and a handheld light. When you receive an oral cancer screening at our office, our dentist simply puts on the OralID glasses and shines the light into your mouth. When viewed through the lenses of the OralID glasses, the light causes the cells in the mouth to change color depending on their health. Healthy tissues will be illuminated in green, while any abnormal tissues will turn dark. In just a few seconds, our dentist will be able to determine whether or not you have oral cancer.
