Sapphire Oral Cancer Screenings

When it comes to oral cancer, early detection is key. Modern Dental employs the Sapphire Plus system to detect lesions and other signs of oral cancer, affording patients treatment options with greater chances of success.

Getting screened is an effective way to discover oral cancer at an early, highly curable stage. With Sapphire Plus Lesion Detection, we can even detect lesions before they produce any pain or symptoms. The Sapphire Plus Lesion Detection system  can also look for HPV, human papillomavirus.

HPV is a sexually-transmitted infection commonly associated with 95% of cervical cancer cases and has been linked to oral cancer. HPV has caused an increase of cases in young, non-smoking individuals. The procedure is painless and takes only minutes! Insurance coverage may be available for yearly oral cancer exams.
