Our Technology
(Oral Cancer Screening )

Due to recent advances in medicine and computer science, your dentist can now painlessly prevent a disease that kills as many Americans as melanoma, twice as many as cervical cancer, and is rising among women, young people, and nonsmokers. Well over 25% of those found to have oral cancer do not use tobacco or abuse alcohol. Recent studies have also shown a link between HPV and an increase in oral cancer. During a careful professional examination most people will be found to have one or more tiny white or red spots in their mouth at one time or another. These tiny spots do not usually contain any unhealthy cells, but only laboratory testing, like the BrushTestTM, can tell. The OralCDx® BrushTestTM is a painless method of testing “everyday” tiny oral spots. A small brush is used to quickly collect a sample for computerassisted
laboratory analysis.
