About Oral Cancer and ViziLite Plus

Oral cancer is the sixth most common type of cancer worldwide and in the U.S., one person dies every hour from the disease. According to American Cancer Society data, nearly as many women will be diagnosed with oral cancer as with cervical cancer this year. The key to reducing the impact of this disease is early detection, yet prior to the introduction of ViziLite Plus the only screening tools available were the manual and visual exam, which helps explain why the mortality and morbidity associated with oral cancer have not markedly improved in the past 40 years. ViziLite Plus utilizes a chemiluminescent light source (ViziLite) and a patented vital tissue dye (TBlue), helping dentists and dental technicians identify and evaluate abnormalities in the mouth that could potentially harbor pathologic changes. The ViziLite Plus exam takes only minutes and is totally painless and non-invasive.

Oral Cancer Risk factors:

-- age - adults

-- tobacco use - particularly if combined with heavy alcohol consumption

-- heavy alcohol consumption

-- excessive sun exposure to the lips

-- sexually transmitted virus exposure (HPV)

A report in the New England Journal of Medicine suggests that exposure to sexually transmitted human papillomavirus number 16 (HPV16) causes oropharyngeal cancer (a type of oral cancer) and may help explain the increasing incidence of the disease in younger people.
