OralID is an adjunctive screening device that uses fluorescence technology to help clinicians identify oral abnormalities. It is easy to use and non-threatening to patients. Dentists and hygienists can use OralID to increase the efficacy of oral exams without incurring additional per-patient costs. One needs only to wipe it down between uses with a disinfecting wipe.* OralID is battery operated, which means it can be used in multiple operatories.
OralID is a battery-operated, hand-held oral examination light used as an adjunctive device for oral mucosal screening. The device emits a visible blue light (435–460 nm) that one shines directly into the oral cavity.
OralID is shipped with the necessary eyewear to use the device. 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.
OralID comes with two pairs of eyewear: one fitted pair and one that fits over eyeglasses. The clinician and the assistant may each wear a pair during the examination. However, if desired, the patient may wear a pair of the eyeglasses, but it is not necessary to do so for safety purposes.
