Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer screenings are a very important part of the dental visit for the patient. With the advances in modern technology, we are now able to pinpoint the start of a potential problem much earlier in its evolution. The ability to do so is extremely important in being able to treat any issues prior to them becoming a major irreversible problem. We do an oral cancer screening on all of our patients during their routine cleaning and exam. 

now using a revolutionary oral cancer screening device 
to detect any suspicious changes in the cells of the mouth, throat, tongue, and tonsils that may 
potentially lead to oral cancer. 
The oral cancer screening device named Identafi®, is manufactured and marketed by the 
DentalEZ® Group. The new medical device will help Dr. _____________ and his/her staff 
reduce patient incidence of oral cancer through early detection. 
Specifically, Identafi detects biochemical and morphological changes in the cells of the mouth, 
throat, tongue, and tonsils that may potentially lead to oral cancer. The small, cordless, 
handheld device uses a three-wavelength optical illumination and visualization system that 
allows dental professionals to identify oral mucosal abnormalities that may not be visible to the 
naked eye.

We are also proud to be one of the first dentists in the area to integrate the modern technology of Identafi into our practice. With the help of Identafi we can more accurately detect any suspicious lesions or changes in the mouth, throat, tongue and tonsils that may lead to oral cancer. Visit www.Identafi.net to learn more about this great technology.

Certain lifestyle choices can have a great impact on the health of tissues and your overall health in the mouth. If you are a smoker or heavy drinker, make sure to get regular screenings when you visit the dentist.
