Early Caries Detection: The Key to Tooth Longevity
Tuesday, March 21, 2017
The sensitivity of X-rays is often lacking in the diagnosis of interproximal caries
Near-Infrared (NIR) Transillumination technology offers detection for occlusal, interproximal, and recurrent caries and cracks
Early caries detection can lead to less invasive corrective procedures, smaller restorations, and greater longevity of the tooth
The use of multiple caries detection technologies, not just radiographs, can be of great value in the quest for early detection. While X-ray is used for diagnosis for a wide variety of diseases, its sensitivity is often lacking in the diagnosis of interproximal caries. This is where Near-Infrared (NIR) Transillumination technology excels.
NIR Transillumination provides a non-ionizing radiation diagnostic alternative, offering detection for occlusal, interproximal, and recurrent caries and cracks.
This eBook presents studies, cases, and videos to explore the advantages of this technology for your patients and your practice.
