Using fluorescence technology, the Spectra unit emits safe, high-energy LED light onto the tooth surface. We then view the tooth on a screen, which clearly displays both a color and numerical reading to precisely indicate the existence and extent of any decay, calculus or bacteria.

The Spectra caries detection aid is a completely non-invasive technology used for diagnosing tooth decay. It is the only caries detection device to use fluorescence technology when visualizing and diagnosing decay, plaque and calculus. This technology is extremely accurate and can even detect decay hidden between the margins of dental fillings! The Doppler radar-like images shown by this device also make it easy for you to understand what is happening in your mouth and what your treatment options are. The accuracy and early detection provided by Spectra also allow our dentists to provide you with more conservative restorations to promote better long-term oral health.
