Spectra® - The only caries detection aid that works like Doppler radar to discover caries earlier.

The award winning Spectra, is the only caries detection aid providing both color and numerical indications of the extent of the decay. Spectra is a non-invasive caries detection aid that helps eliminate the guesswork in detecting and diagnosing tooth decay and enhances case acceptance through better patient education. Spectra’s Doppler radar-like images are easily understood, so you can clearly show your patients how early intervention helps them and how they can avoid future treatment that might be painful, expensive and more invasive.       

Why Use Spectra Caries Detection Aid?
Explorers have very low sensitivity for caries detection and provide virtually no diagnostic feedback. Moreover, explorers can actually cause damage by breaking enamel rods and causing an iatrogenic cavitation when forced into an incipient carious lesion.
