The handheld device delivers blue light, which causes the soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce. Healthy tissues fluoresce in distinct patterns that are visibly disrupted by trauma or disease, such as neoplastic lesions, chemical irritation, side effects from medication, thermal damage, fungal, viral, or bacterial infections. The system allows a wide variety of oral abnormalities to be discovered—often before they're visible to the unassisted eye. It also offers photo/video documentation capabilities through the viewing mechanism, which is a key function for referrals and patient records.
