OralID is a battery-operated, hand-held oral examination light used as an adjunctive device for oral mucosal screening. The device emits a visable blue light (435-460 nm) that shines directly into the oral cavity.
Wearing the special OralID eyewear enhances the visual effects of the blue light during the oral exam. When the blue light from OralID shines on healthy oral tissue, it fluoresces green. However, when it shines on abnormal tissue, it appears dark due to a lack of fluorescence. This tool will prove to be invaluable when it comes to early detection of oral cancer.
