At Somerset Family Dental, we use OralID™ to give you a more effective oral cancer screening. By using fluorescent light, OralID™ can identify cancerous or other abnormal lesions before they are visible to the naked eye. This allows Dr. Brandon J. Ryff to catch and remove problematic tissue before it can cause you harm. For more information about OralID™ in Gilbert, Arizona, and to schedule an appointment with our dentist, please contact us at 480-359-1478.
Our patients’ health is important to our office, and we strive to give you quality dental care that will help preserve your dental and overall health. Oral cancer is a serious condition and should be treated just like any other cancer, as it can be extremely harmful or deadly. It is important to receive oral cancer screenings from your dentist as means of preventing or treating oral cancer. Our dentist uses advanced dental technology to assist in our oral cancer screenings.
OralID provides the latest technology when it comes to oral cancer screenings. Some cancerous lesions can be difficult to see with the naked eye, and by the time they are found, the damage may be extensive. By using this small, hand-held device, our dentist can identify pre-cancerous, cancerous, and other irregular lesions before the cancer becomes advanced.
OralID uses fluorescence technology to identify cancer. Fluorescence technology is harmless, and has been used in other oral exam devices as well as general medical applications to detect other types of cancer. During your regular dental checkups, our dentist will use OralID to look inside your mouth and throat for cancerous lesions, much like using a flashlight to see. By using the advanced and accurate OralID technology, our dentist can provide you with a more accurate diagnosis at no additional cost to you. Please contact our office if you have questions or concerns regarding oral cancer or our advanced OralID technology.
