Spectra is a noninvasive caries (cavities) detection aid that helps eliminate the guesswork in detecting and diagnosing tooth decay. It is the only caries detector that uses fluorescence technology to visualize and discover cavities earlier than traditional methods. Our Grand Rapids dentists use Spectra to treat cavities earlier than ever before.
Our dentists use Spectra and the latest dental technology so you always have access to quality dental care. The sooner we’re able to detect a cavity, the sooner we’ll be able to protect your oral health. Preventing tooth decay in its early stages can also help you save money that would have otherwise been spent on dental crowns and other restorative dentistry.
Spectra identifies bacteria on the surfaces of your teeth. After we take a photo image of your tooth, we’re able to display it on the screen so you can see for yourself. Spectra not only helps us detect cavities earlier, but it also lets us know if we removed all the decayed tooth matter after a procedure. Green areas indicate healthy tooth enamel while red areas indicate decay.
Our dentists use the latest dental technology to help you maintain a healthy smile. To schedule your appointment with one of our Grand Rapids, MI, dentists, call Contemporary Family Dental at (616) 209-3969, or contact us online.
