Oral ID Cancer Screening Device

Oral ID Cancer Screening DeviceThe office of David Wilhite is now offering you effective oral cancer screening using the Oral ID device. 

The Oral ID device is a specialized light using the newest technology to shine in the mouth and can detect oral cancer or an abnormality. This new device can detect potential cancer sooner than a standard examination by a doctor could see it in your mouth using normal examining room lights.

 

Why we recommend this procedure

We find ourselves asking the question, “what is our protocol for detecting and monitoring suspicious, potentially dangerous lesions in the oral mucosa?” The American Dental Association has set the mandatory protocol for detecting oral lesions as an annual health history review with a visual and tactile examination.

a 2 minute exam could save your life OralID

While Dr. Wilhite has been screening for oral cancer at yearly exam visits for over 20 years now, there has always been a question of whether it would be detected early enough.

It has also been questioned, is once a year enough since oral cancer can grow at a rapid rate?

With advancements in technology, we now have the ability to “bring light” to abnormalities at much earlier stages utilizing fluorescence.

Why We Recommend Oral Cancer Screenings

Fluorescence technology can assist in discovering abnormal lesions that may not be visible with white light. Identifying more than just cancer, fluorescence technology allows us to discover increased metabolic activity which can result from a palatal burn to a cheek bite to a squamous cell carcinoma.

So how do we decipher between the burn and bite, to anything more severe? This is where our OralID Cancer Screening Light and Dr Wilhite step in for the examination.

Using this light we can now find cancer early enough to make a difference. Before, if Dr. Wilhite found a suspicious area it could already be at stage III or stage IV.

We recommend this screening every 6 months at your regular dental exam visit. While anyone can get cancer at any age, we do advise patients from the age of 17 and up take advantage of this life-saving exam.
