More reliable caries detection
The Facelight light probe enables you to proceed selectively during caries excavation.
This is supported by the innovative FACE method: Fluorescence Aided Caries Excavation
How Facelight works
Bacteria in dentine infected by caries leave behind metabolic products (porphyrins).
When an exposed cavity is illuminated with violet light (wavelength of 405 nm),
these porphyrins show a red fluorescence, thereby indicating the significant areas
for caries excavation.
