Oral Cancer Screening and Head and Neck Inspection are Our Responsibility!
October 1, 2012
Sadly, one person dies from oral cancer every hour of every day in the United States. Close to 40,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral or pharyngeal cancer this year. Of those newly diagnosed individuals, only 57% will be alive in five years. … We need to observe it earlier! Dentists and ental hygienists are the only health practitioners that observe the oral cavity on a routine basis. We have the responsibility to observe and question oral lesions. However, a recent CR survey reported that only 50% of dental hygienists are conducting potentially lifesaving oral cancer screenings. We can do better! … Fluorescence is a viable adjunct to mandatory visual and manual oral cancer screening because it reveals abnormal cells before they may be noticed visually. … Cancer screening must be a routine part of oral examiniations, and dental hygiensts and dentists should inform their patients of this valuable service they provide.

The Fusion Curing Light by Dentlight offers great versatility in a lightweight, easily handled, smartly designed instrument.
Not only is it a fast curing light but it comes with a masking shield that reduces the light to a pinpoint for spot curing laminates while placing them if that technique is desired by the clinician.

“Smallest and lightest control unit/battery pack. Controls are easy to use. Plenty of power for a small light. Two batteries and AC option keep you working without interruption. Audible warning when battery is running low. Filter is easy to remove and install. Relatively inexpensive. ”
Small size, minimal weight, and reasonable price along with above average illumination make this headlight a good choice.
