Air Techniques, Inc., announced today that its Spectra Caries Detection Aid was very warmly received by the hygienists attending the recent RDH Under One Roof event in Orlando, Florida.

Using fluorescence technology, the Spectra device emits high-energy LED light onto the tooth surface. The hygienist then views the tooth on a screen, which clearly displays bothcolors and numbers to precisely indicate the existence and extent of any decay, calculus and plaque.

At RDH Under One Roof, this innovative device was exposed to nearly 1,000 dental hygienists from around the country through a series of hands-on workshops. The workshops were conducted by Shirley Gutkowski, RDH, a well-known consultant, author and speaker on the topic of dental hygiene, and Jonathan Newman, a digital imaging specialist at Air Techniques.

According to Mr. Newman, “When you have a new device that provides an unprecedented amount of insightful clinical data, there’s really no substitute for putting it in hygienists’ hands and letting them experience its benefits firsthand.” He added, “The hygienists at RDH Under One Roof particularly liked how intuitive the device is to use, and how it eliminates so much of the guesswork from their job.”

The Spectra device allows the hygienist to compare fluorescent images of the tooth before and after it has been polished with a remineralizing prophy paste. According to Ms. Gutkowski, “When the Spectra display documents that some degree of remineralization has occurred, the hygienist knows to continue the process by sending the patient home with a remineralizing toothpaste. When all is said and done, fewer teeth will have to undergo surgical procedures and require fillings.”

While other caries detection devices are on the market, the Spectra device is the only one that provides both numerical and color readings to precisely indicate the extent of the enamel breakdown. It is also the only fluorescent device that can detect calculus and plaque as well as decay.

“It’s no secret that the notion of having one’s teeth drilled is a major source of patient anxiety, which leads many people to avoid visiting their dentist,” said Riad Abuelafiya, Air Techniques VP sales and marketing. “Spectra’s leading edge technology promises to not only ease that anxiety, but to enable dental professionals to truly restore teeth rather than engage in unnecessary excavation.”

True restoration is Air Techniques’ goal. “Drilling a tooth and filling it with an amalgam filling is not a restorative procedure; it’s a prosthetic procedure,” said Ms. Gutkowski. “By reducing the frequency of ‘drilling and filling’ and increasing the emphasis on remineralization, Spectra technology can enable a dental practice to truly restore more teeth to health.”
