Sharp explorers and radiographs have been the primary means of caries detection for many years. Both tactile inspection and radiographs have limitations. The caries has to become deep enough or large enough to be “seen” by the tip of the explorer or radiographically.

– You will learn how advanced diagnostic tools are being used to detect these lesions earlier.
– Florescence technology provides a means for diagnosing early demineralize to deep decay through a color scale.
– Appropriate restorative options can then be utilized. Using this technology will aid in our goal of minimally invasive dentistry.
