Oral cancer is one of the most preventable cancers if it is diagnosed in time. Unfortunately, more people die from oral cancer than from cervical cancer, Hodgkin's lymphoma, or melanoma. This is because oral cancer is often diagnosed when it is already advanced. Early diagnosis and treatment is the most effective way to treat oral cancer. Early diagnosis includes examination of the mouth and neck by inspection, palpation, correlating signs and symptoms with the results of the examination, using adjunctive devices to better visualize changes in the tissue.
The Sapphire Plus LD provides enhanced visual information so we can better detect and diagnose the presence of cancer or pre-cancer. Sapphire Plus LD emits a safe blue light into the oral cavity that helps to enhance visualizing abnormal changes in oral tissue.
