Humphries Dental understands that for a dentist, identifying oral health issues is one of the most important responsibilities we have. For that reason, have acquired the cutting-edge OralID® device, which enables us to provide early detection of some of the most dangerous oral problems.

What is OralID®?

OralID® is a groundbreaking device that looks similar to a flashlight and uses fluorescent light to help diagnose oral and nasal conditions. OralID® is portable, small, and battery-operated. These qualities make OralID® easy to use and capable of reaching hard-to-reach areas in the mouth. This device is especially useful in detecting oral lesions and other soft tissue abnormalities.

How Does OralID® Work?

Unlike traditional options, OralID® does not use dyes or other chemicals to help diagnose oral conditions. Instead, the device uses a fluorescent light that shows abnormal tissue as a different color than healthy tissue.

How Can OralID® Help Diagnose Oral Cancer?

Every year, over 53,000 Americans are diagnosed with oral cancer. OralID® makes early cancer diagnosis more attainable than ever before. The fluorescent beam can highlight signs of oral cancer that cannot be seen with the human eye, like lesions and open sores on the lips, mouth, tongue, and throat. Smaller lesions can be easily missed using traditional devices and normal medical flashlights but OralID® makes identifying those pivotal early signs more likely.

  • Quick and painless procedure
