With the help of new near-infrared transillumination technology, dental professionals can detect a range of carious lesions and cracks - all without the need of ionizing radiation associated with X-rays.

Clinicians can use this technology to see through the tooth exposing its structure, and the actual structure of any carious lesion with a high degree of accuracy.

In these images, the natural tooth looks transparent, while caries appears as darker shades of grey. Since this is similar to radiographs, it’s familiar and easy to read.

In this free e-book, sponsored by DEXIS, we explore the new technology in detail and explore what it means for the dental industry, caries detection, and how it will procedures for you and your patients.
