We take a stand against oral cancer using OralID™ Fluorescence Technology
We joined forces with Forward Science, the manufacturer of OralID™, and became a provider of the ID For Life™ Program to promote early detection and public awareness of oral cancer in the office.
Oral Cancer is not a rare disease and unfortunately it is on the rise. This year, approximately 45,780 will be diagnosed with oral cancer in the United States alone. Due to late stage discovery, one American dies every hour from oral cancer. Currently, 63% of oral cancers are found in late stages (stage III, IV), resulting in a 5-year survival rate of less than 50%. Finding these abnormalities in much earlier stages can increase the 5-year survival rate up to 80-90%.
Our office uses an oral cancer screening device, OralID, in efforts to discover oral cancers in their earliest stages. It’s a simple, 2 minute examination that allows us to detect oral abnormalities that may not be visible to the naked eye by shining a special blue light around your mouth that turns any cancer, pre-cancer and other abnormalities a different color.
The exam is very affordable ($30) and is recommended annually for everyone over the age of 17, regardless of risk factors.
