New contract brings CarieScan PRO tooth decay detection system to market

CarieScan

CarieScan has agreed a deal with Clark Dental to promote the PRO tooth decay detection system

 

The device is more accurate than existing techniques and enables the detection of tooth decay without the risks associated with X-rays. It can measure the carious state of teeth early enough to initiate remedial (preventive) treatment.

 

CarieScan PRO is 92.5% accurate at detecting both sound and carious teeth, minimising false results, and is not affected by optical factors such as staining or discoloration of the teeth.

 

Benefits include:

  • Fewer X-rays reduce costs and risks to dentists and patients

  • Fewer fillings reduce costs and discomfort for patients
