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.

Your advantages at a glance:

  • Facelight offers visual detection of caries in opened cavities at a glance.
  • Facelight supports you to select exactly what you want to excavate minimally invasive.
  • A check with Facelight gives you security and minimises the risk of caries recurrence.
