We are proud to utilize OralID® from Forward Science, a cutting-edge technology that enhances our ability to identify signs of oral cancer at its earliest stages. Our dentist and skilled team are committed to incorporating advanced diagnostic tools like OralID to ensure the best possible health outcomes for our patients.

Understanding OralID

OralID is a revolutionary screening tool used in the early detection of oral cancer and precancerous conditions. This innovative device utilizes fluorescence technology to identify abnormal tissue growths that might not be visible to the naked eye. OralID is particularly beneficial in detecting early signs of oral cancer, which can include:

  • White or red patches in the mouth
  • Sores that fail to heal
  • Unusual lumps or thickening of tissues
  • Persistent sore throat or feeling that something is caught in the throat
  • Difficulty chewing, swallowing or moving the jaw or tongue

Your OralID Screening

Undergoing an OralID screening at our office is a simple and swift process. During your regular dental visit, Dr. Thomas will use the OralID device to examine your mouth for signs of abnormal tissue. The process is completely comfortable and can be a lifesaving procedure, as early detection is crucial in the successful treatment of oral cancer.

Benefits of OralID Screening

  • Early Detection: Identifies potential problems before they become more serious.
  • Non-Invasive and Painless: A stress-free addition to your dental check-up.
  • Quick and Efficient: Screening takes only a few minutes.
  • Peace of Mind: Provides reassurance about your oral health.
