with Identifi

At Calabasas Dental Spa, we are committed to providing comprehensive oral health care and preventive services. We understand the importance of early detection in any medical condition, which is why we provide routine screenings for oral cancer. We utilize the most advanced technology to monitor all patients for oral cancer.

Oral cancer is a type of head and neck cancer that affects the structures of your mouth, including the tongue, throat and lips. It can be caused by lifestyle factors like smoking or excessive alcohol consumption. At Calabasas Dental Spa, our experienced team offers advanced diagnostic techniques as part of an extensive examination process to detect any signs or symptoms of oral cancer at its earliest stages.

Using ultraviolet light technology, Identifi, we are able to more thoroughly inspect your mouth to help us detect most abnormalities and/or growths not otherwise visible. Early detection leads to minimally invasive, infinitely less costly treatments…and of course, elimination of significantly greater and potentially irreversible problems. This is not only true for higher risk smokers and heavy drinkers, but also for young people who are at higher risk for HPV. For these patients especially, we recommend more frequent oral cancer screenings, at least twice a year.

If we find anything suspicious during your screening, our dentists and specialists work together to develop a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to your individual needs and lifestyle. We use only the most advanced techniques and state-of-the-art technology for diagnosing and treating oral cancer.

Calabasas Dental Spa actively promotes early detection and treatment of dental problems. We believe that this approach not only saves you time, money and discomfort…but it can actually save your life. Our team is committed to helping you maintain good overall health through preventive services like oral cancer screenings.
