Our practice continually looks for advances to ensure that we are providing the optimum level of oral health care to our patients. We are concerned about oral cancer and look for it in every patient. Early detection of pre-cancerous tissue can minimize or eliminate the potentially disfiguring effects of oral cancer.
We offer a non-invasive screening test, called Identafi. This test takes approximately 2 minutes to complete and uses Multi-Spectral Fluorescence and Reflectance technology to enhance visualization of mucosal abnormalities such as oral cancer or premalignant dysplasia that may not be apparent to the naked eye. But unlike other fluorescence technologies and dye systems, Identafi is Multi-Spectral with three distinct color wavelengths, making it easier to distinguish lesion morphology and vasculature aiding the dental professional in a diagnosis. This enhanced examination is recognized by the American Dental Association.
