DUNDEE, Scotland--CarieScan is offering an incentive for dental professionals to try CarieScan PRO. With a 94.8-percent accuracy rate in detecting hidden caries, the PRO not only indicates when restoration of a tooth is required, but also can locate the lesion. This allows restorations (fillings) to be small and cosmetically acceptable.Dentists can take advantage of the company’s DIAGNOdent trade-in program. CarieScan offers this trade-in program through June 30, 2012. Dental practices with proof of purchase of a CarieScan PRO during this time period can return the DIAGNOdent unit to CarieScan’s customer service center and receive $350.“The proven accuracy of the CarieScan PRO makes the product a must-have for patient care, but we understand that upgrading equipment can be cost-prohibitive,” said Craig Simpson, CarieScan’s head of sales and marketing. “With this trade-in offer, we are giving our customers the opportunity to take advantage of the groundbreaking technology in the CarieScan PRO with minimal investment.”Related information, click here.The CarieScan PRO allows patients and dentists to benefit from a quick and comfortable experience as a result of a functionality upgrade that increases the speed of measurements. Each measurement takes less than a second, down from five seconds on the previous version. Additionally the classification reading of the 0-100 scale has been further simplified into high, mMedium, and low probability categories with specific advice for each identified category to help the dentist with caries treatment and intervention support.The CarieScan PRO registers seven times fewer false positives than its closest competitor to help minimize the potential to drill on healthy teeth. It reduces the need for X-rays and provides quantifiable and repeatable output to allow for ongoing patient monitoring and an increase in repeat preventive treatments. The ease of use allows preparatory work to be done by hygienists to save time and money.Dental professionals can take advantage of the DIAGNOdent trade-in program by visiting www.cariescan.com/ustradein and filling out the form provided.
