CamX Spectra Caries (Decay) Detection Aid is a non-invasive camera that helps eliminate the guesswork in detecting and diagnosing tooth decay.
It is the only caries detection aid that uses fluorescence technology to visualize and discover decay earlier, as well as plaque (biofilm) and calculus (tartar). CamX Spectra can detect decay in deep fissures that may go unnoticed in x-ray images. There are 4 Violet LEDs which stimulate metabolic products found in decay-causing bacteria, causing them to glow red while healthy enamel glows green. CamX Spectra will also detect decay hidden between the margins of existing restorations and the surrounding tooth structure.
