oral cancer screening at Pawlowicz DentistrySapphire Light Oral Cancer Screening

Early detection is the most effective first step in treating any cancer. In the case of oral cancer, we offer the best early detection system in our office.

Sapphire’s advanced light technology helps detect oral abnormalities. The process is painless and non-invasive. It give us the opportunity to see beyond what traditional visual inspection can identify. This can provide us with an early warning in the event an abnormality is seen.

An annual oral cancer screening is one reason why regular dental examinations are recommended for all adults.

Approximately 25% of oral cancer cases have no known risk factors.
