New Caries Detection Unit
From the CarieScan web site
With the growing trend towards preventive dental care, CarieScan provides practitioners with more opportunity to arrest or even reverse caries.
Accurate and early detection of caries combined with preventive care should leads to fewer fillings. When required fillings should be smaller, be placed later, and last longer.
Caries detection using CarieScan is more comfortable for the patient, will correctly detect more lesions than will be found on radiographs and also minimises false positives.
As a system using only tiny electrical currents to detect decay, CarieScan has none of the inherent risks associated with ionising radiation.
The CarieScan results are valuable to both the patient and the practitioner. They provide additional information about the tooth without the need for an x-ray, helping the dentist to plan the necessary treatment or operative steps.
