Oral Cancer Detection Using OralID

How Pippin Dental Care Helps Detect Oral Cancer

Oral Cancer Detection Using OralID - Pippin Dental Care -

OralID™ Helps Us Detect Oral Cancer Early

Oral cancer is quickly becoming one of the most prevalent forms of cancer today. But surprisingly, it’s rarely talked about. The biggest problem with oral cancer is that many patients aren’t diagnosed until late in the game. We want to change that with the help of OralID™.

Some major risk factors for oral cancer are:

  • age 40 years or older
  • alcohol use
  • smoking
  • smokeless tobacco
  • previous oral cancer history

OralID Allows Us To Detect Cancer Early

Because your health is our highest concern and oral cancer is extremely dangerous, we’ve invested in an amazing new technology called Oral ID. Oral ID can detect cancer in your mouth before we can see it with their own eyes. OralID uses a sophisticated fluorescence technology that highlights areas where there have been morphological changes in your cells. The OralID process is simple:

  • We will feel around the outside and inside of your mouth for lesions or growths.
  • Using the blue OralID light, we will shine the light around your mouth, searching for discolored spots or clumps.
  • They would then discuss anything concerning.

Schedule Your Screening With Us Today!

Don’t misunderstand. If you don’t have any of the risk factors above, you’re still at risk. This is why our doctors recommend checking for oral cancer with every patient. We’ve found that forty percent of oral cancers are actually found in people who don’t identify with any of these risk factors.
