Oral Cancer Screening

Cave Creek, AZ: We have incorporated latest technology in early detection of Oral Cancer.

When found early, oral cancer patients have an 80 to 90 % survival rate. Unfortunately 40% of those diagnosed with oral cancer will die within five years because the majority of these cases will be discovered as a late stage malignancy.

Oral cancer is particularly dangerous, because the patient may not notice it in its early stages. It can frequently prosper without producing pain or symptoms. As a result, Oral Cancer often goes undetected until it has already metastasized to another location.

Most oral cancer screenings are done by a Dentist or Hygienist.

Identafi® Technology

The detection is made through the processing of optical fluorescence and reflectance in certain body tissues. The Identafi® core technologies are based on high-speed, high-resolution capabilities from its patented optical processing technology and includes the ability to identify metabolic and physiologic differences in diseased and healthy tissue in the human body.

Ask our Dentist or Hygienist about Identafi Oral Cancer Screening at your next visit.
