Early caries detection has been cited as key to optimal prevention and treatment. Air Techniques’ Spectra uses fluorescence technology to aid in the detection of plaque and caries, especially early-stage enamel caries and hard-to-detect fissure caries. The lightweight handpiece has a high-resolution, high-sensitivity CCD sensor with autoexposure. The unit’s LEDs project high-energy light onto the tooth’s surface, causing cariogenic bacteria to fluoresce red and healthy enamel to fluoresce green.
