Minimally invasive dentistry has become a hot topic over the last few years. New technology and techniques have focused on earlier diagnosis and detection as well as early intervention of disease.
Our LED Caries detector uses a 405 nm LED, which causes porphyrins from caries-producing bacteria to fluoresce. When dentin is healthy, the spectrum (color) of the fluorescence is green. When the dentin is infected the spectrum is red.
Early caries detection has never been so easy !
