Dentists can save lives

Dentists can save lives

(NAPS)-Although the Oral Cancer Foundation estimates that close to 37,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year, you may be able to avoid being one of them.
Oral cancer kills one person every hour of the day, each day of the year-mostly because it's often diagnosed too late. Now, however, an advanced technology is available that can help your dentist and hygienist better detect abnormalities of the mouth, throat, tongue and tonsils that may possibly be the early signs of cancer.
It's an oral screening device known as Identafi(r), which uses three separate wavelengths of light combined with an angled examination mirror to identify oral tissue abnormalities that might not be visible to the naked eye and under normal lighting conditions. This small, cordless device's compact size enables painless, easy inspection of hard-to-reach areas in the mouth. The device is marketed under the StarDental brand of DentalEZ Group.
