Our office is equipped with the SoproLife intraoral camera. Intraoral cameras are an excellent means of allowing the patient to view potential dental conditions in their own mouth. It is much easier to understand what is happening in your mouth if you can see the problem on a computer monitor. This digital image can be also utilized to provide information to your insurance company and other doctors, if necessary.
The introduction of the SoproLife light induced fluorescence evaluator provides the doctor with an additional tool to detect decay when other traditional methods prove inconclusive. The blue LED emits light at 450 nm. This wavelength excites the dentin which, in reaction, reflects a light signal named Fluorescence.
