Oral ID Cancer Screening
Batesville Dental takes a stand against oral cancer using Oral ID™ Fluorescence Technology.
Oral Cancer is not a rare disease and unfortunately it is on the rise. This year, approximately 45,780 will be diagnosed with oral cancer in the United States alone. Due to late stage discovery, one American dies every hour from oral cancer.
Dr. Broughton, Dr. Ledermeier and Dr. Roberts use an oral cancer screening device, Oral ID, in efforts to discover oral cancers in their earliest stages. Currently, 63% of oral cancers are found in late stages (stage III, IV), resulting in a 5-year survival rate of less than 50%. Finding these abnormalities in much earlier stages can increase the 5-year survival rate up to 80-90%.
