Breakthrough Technology That Will Revolutionize the Treatment of Tooth Decay
Date:7/3/2008

Revolutionary early detection system finds cavities before X-rays allowing dentists to remineralize affected teeth. No drilling or filling required

TORONTO, July 3 /PRNewswire/ - Quantum Dental Technologies, a Canadian diagnostic device company, revealed its breakthrough technology which detects and monitors the early onset of tooth decay without the need for dental x-rays. It reduces the number of invasive and painful procedures, and encourages better oral health. Quantum introduced its Dental Caries Detection System prototype, known as The Canary System, at the International Association for Dental Research (IADR) Conference in Toronto, Canada.

"Dentists are limited in their abilities to detect and monitor the early stages of tooth decay with traditional diagnostic tools such as the X-ray and visual examination," said Dr. Stephen Abrams, Chief Executive Officer of the Toronto-based Quantum Dental Technologies and dental clinician. "Now, with this innovative new system that is pain free, non-invasive and provides early caries detection, we can finally move away from intervention, or the filling of cavities, to focus on prevention and actual remineralization or healing of small areas of tooth decay."

The Canary System uses a handheld laser that emits a low-power light to examine tooth surfaces. When laser light is shone onto the tooth, the system measures the level of glow (luminescence) and heat released from the tooth. Laser light interacts differently with healthy teeth than with decayed teeth. By varying the pulse of the laser beam, a depth profile of the tooth can be created to permit detection of decay as deep as 5mm from the tooth surface and as small as 50 microns in size (20 times smaller than a millimeter). With The Canary System, the dentist is able to identify areas of decay much earlier than with current methods.

This technology is based on extensive research including 30 published research articles in peer-reviewed dent
