Oral Cancer Screenings
ImageCare Dental Group is Now Offering Enhanced Oral Cancer Screenings at our Plano, TX dental office. Dr. Steven Thompson and his team utilize OralID™ Fluorescence Technology to detect oral cancer in its earliest stages.
ImageCare has partnered with Forward Science, the manufacturer of OralID™, and became a provider of the ID For Life™ Program, promoting early stage detection and awareness of oral cancer. Dr. Thompson, Dr. Imperial, and Dr. Melton are offering enhanced oral cancer screenings during scheduled appointments to both new and current patients .
Oral Cancer is relatively common and unfortunately it is on the rise. This year, almost 50,000 people will be diagnosed in the United States. Primarily due to late stage discovery, one American dies every hour from oral cancer. Dr. Thompson and the team at ImageCare use oral cancer screening device, OralID, to help discover oral cancer in its 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%. Discovery in earlier stages may increase the 5-year survival rate up to 80-90%.
