Oral cancer screenings are one of the most powerful preventive treatments that we offer at Burns Dentistry. If that does not get your attention, this will: oral cancer kills one person every hour. Our dentists are dedicated to analyzing the oral and overall health of their patients. Therefore, we offer oral cancer screenings in Sun City and Sun City West, Arizona, with our advanced and efficient Identafi® cancer screening device.
Identafi can help change the odds of oral cancer progression by using advanced oral mucosal visual enhancement. The rate of successfully curing oral cancer is 80-90 percent when detected early on. Why, then, are oral cancer screenings not an essential part of every dental visit? Unfortunately, the signs and symptoms of oral cancer are often missed by the naked eye. Identafi can post biochemical and morphological changes in cells of the mouth, throat, tongue and tonsils. Fluorescent lighting allows our dentists to enhance the appearance of suspicious tissue, thus detecting any abnormalities early on and providing immediate, early treatment. It can literally save lives, and we are privileged to have such an advanced technology to appease any of the worries our patients may have.
