Shining an even brighter light on oral cancer detection
Identafi 3000 ultra uses a revolutionary technology which employs 3 unique wavelengths of light that can detect oral cancer with more efficacy than the naked eye. Early detection means early treatment, and a cure rate of nearly 90%.
Your dentist – the professional on the front line of detection – has a revolutionary new medical device called the Identafi 3000 ultra that uses Multi-Spectral technology to identify biochemical and morphological changes in the cells of your mouth, throat, tongue and tonsils. These changes often go undetected by the naked eye, but are made visible through the use of Identafi’s special light waves, which illuminate possible areas of change that may signal the occurrence, or early beginnings of Oral Cancer.
The test is simple, painless and takes less than 3 minutes.
Using the Identafi 3000 ultra in the “White Light” mode, your dentist will first examine the entire oral cavity. The upper portion of the mouth and inner contour of the teeth are examined first, followed by the lower portion of the mouth, and the floor of the mouth. The tongue, hard and soft palate, and the pharynx are then examined.
The instrument is switched to “Fluorescent Violet Light” to identify any areas of abnormal tissue growth, which may be benign or cancerous.
Finally, the instrument is switched to “Green-Amber Reflectance Light” to examine the blood vessels around the lesions. Lesions with abnormal growth are more likely to be malignant.
Speak with your doctor if you would like to be screened for Oral Cancer today using Identafi 3000 ultra. A nominal fee may be charged to the cost of the procedure.
