SPECTRA is an innovative new device that uses fluorescence scanning technology to discover early tooth decay as well as visualize deep tooth decay. The award winning SPECTRA is the only non-invasive tooth decay detection device that provides both color and numerical indications of the location of bacteria inside teeth. This eliminates the guesswork usually involved with picking at cavities. Patients can see the areas of decay on a television screen, helping them understand their need for treatment. Patients no longer have to wonder if their dentist is just “making cavities up”!
At LI Center for Healthier Dentistry, we utilize SPECTRA’s unique technology in order to avoid root canals. Learn more by clicking below:
