DUNDEE, Scotland--With a 94.8% accuracy rate in detecting hidden caries, CarieScan PRO is a reliable and precise detection tool. The PRO not only indicates when restoration of a tooth is required, but also locates the lesion to allow restorations (fillings) to be small and cosmetically acceptable.Related information, click here.Dentists who take advantage of this technology will get another benefit--six boxes of free sensors, which is a $500 value. CarieScan offers this benefit for dental professionals who purchase a CarieScan PRO from Dec. 1, 2011, to June 30, 2012.“Detecting dental caries lesions continues to be one of the biggest challenges facing most dental practitioners,” said Craig Simpson, CarieScan’s head of sales and marketing. “It is often missed by even the most careful dental professionals using conventional methods of detection. Now, the industry-leading accuracy and reliability of the CarieScan PRO is proving invaluable to dentists. With this great promotion, our customers can take advantage of this precise technology while getting the added benefit of six free boxes of sensors.”The CarieScan PRO allows patients and dentists to benefit from a much quicker and more 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 also been further simplified into high, medium, and low (H,M,L) 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 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 saving time and money.Dental professionals can take advantage of the free sensor program by visiting www.cariescan.com/uspromo and filling out the form provided.
