Did you know that 1 person dies from Oral Cancer every hour.

Approximately 40,000 people in the United States will be diagnosed with oral cancer and over 40% of those diagnosed will die within five years.

The high mortality rate associated with oral cancer is due to late stage diagnosis. Unfortunately, by the time you or your dentist notices a cancerous lesion in your mouth, the disease will have already progressed to a very advanced stage. 90% of oral cancers are squamous cell carcinomas which are extremely aggressive in nature. The incidence rate for oral cancer is 3 times greater than that of cervical cancer and prostate cancer and unfortunately the mortality rate associated with this deadly disease has not improved in the last 40 years.

These alarming statistics have led to recent technological breakthroughs in the research and development of  Oral Cancer Screening Technology.

At Creditview Dental, we have taken a leading position in the screening of our patients for this deadly disease. We are proud to offer the Identifi 3000 by Trimera as the state-of-the-art technology in oral cancer screening.

It uses white,violet, and amber wavelengths of light to excite oral tissue in distinct and unique ways. As a result, biochemical changes can be monitored with fluorescence, while morphological changes can be monitored with reflectance. It is the only system that uses 3 distinct wavelengths of light, which allows us to more accurately evaluate the tissues.

The good news is that when oral cancer is detected at its earliest stages,  the prognosis and 5 year survival rates are excellent. This early detection can only be achieved with the help of this exciting new technology. The screening examination takes 2 minutes and is very simple and completely painless.

A small, handheld device is used to shine the light in your mouth. We will shine it on your cheeks, tongue, floor of the mouth, palate, and throat, and within minutes, we will be able to determine the health of all these soft tissues.
