Dental caries are permanently damaged areas in teeth that develop into tiny holes can be quite difficult to detect due to the fact they don’t always appear on the x-ray. The use of the dental explorer has long been the only way to catch minute caries but it is an invasive procedure that can cause more harm than good. With the many digital advances in Dentistry a new and improved method of detecting caries without the use of the explorer has finally hit the industry. Not only can this digital device detect dental caries through the use of fluorescent light, it can also detect the damage level.
