Even though the “BrushTest” is used in your mouth it has nothing to do with teeth. The OralCDx BrushTest is a virtually painless way for a dentist or physician to test common oral spots (subtle red or white spots) that may appear in your mouth from time to time. The special brush has tiny bristles that collect cells as the tool is applied and rotated on the oral spot. It can be used anywhere in the mouth.
Once the cells have been collected, the specimen is sent to CDx Diagnostics. It’s the only lab in the world that can process the sample. World class pathologists using sophisticated computer technology help doctors determine the cause of the common oral spot while making sure that the abnormality is not precancer or cancer. OralCDx can also help the clinician decide if a scalpel biopsy is necessary to investigate the area further.
