On a technology note, researchers based at Quantum Dental Technologies Inc., Canada, and the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, USA, have demonstrated that the remineralization of natural buccal caries lesions induced by Curodont Repair and the regression of those lesions can be detected and monitored by the Canary System and the Canary Lab. The data have been presented at the American Association of Dental Research (AADR) conference in Charlotte, USA.(8)
Curolox Technology is based on peptides self-assembling into a 3-dimensional matrix, triggering biomimetic mineralisation and repair. The core technology is the basis for all innovative credentis products.(9) The Canary System and Canary Lab are part of the product line developed by Quantum Dental Technologies, Inc. in Toronto, Canada. Powered by PTR-LUM energy conversion technology, these systems can detect and monitor changes in the crystal structure of a tooth caused by caries (tooth decay), erosion or cracks.(10)
And last, but not least, enjoy the inspirational story from Sherri L. Warshaw, RDH, CTTS, a Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist.
Happy Easter to all!!
