Oral Cancer Screenings
Close to 45,750 Americans will be diagnosed with oral or pharyngeal cancer this year. It will cause over 8,650 deaths, killing roughly 1 person per hour, 24 hours per day. Of those 45,750 newly diagnosed individuals, only slightly more than half will be alive in 5 years (Oral Cancer Foundation)
At Barfield Dental, we take oral cancer detection seriously. Every patient receives a visual oral cancer exam from our trained hygienists. However, many lesions can be detected much earlier using the latest technology in oral cancer screenings. At out office, we offer Identiafi to patients for early detection of oral cancer lesions.
“The signs and symptoms of oral cancer are often missed by the naked eye, especially in its early stages. The Identafi® uses a revolutionary lightwave technology that can help clinicians detect abnormalities that may lead to oral cancer, so that something can be done about it as soon as possible. Early detection means early treatment, and a cure rate of nearly 90%.”
