PROFACE Caries Detector   |   <<Back To Category

Proface provides a clinical aid in the detection of bacterially infected hard tooth tissue, particularly infected dentin. This way, caries excavation is more reliable than with traditional tools (probing the hardness, application of staining agents). The traditional tools only indirectly permit a conclusion on the bacterial infection of dentin. By contrast, the Proface light probe, together with the diagnostic goggles, form a tool which can be used to directly visualize the remaining bacterially infected dentin at any time and to evaluate the success of the caries excavation.
