CALCiViS provides dentists with engaging, real-time, chair-side images of early-stage tooth decay, supporting a preventive approach to oral care. Tooth decay is the world’s most common non-communicable disease, global prevalence of 35%. Calcivis and eg technology designed the hand-held diagnostic system, which sprays a special ‘photoprotein’ onto the tooth surface and then detects a luminescent flash from any decaying regions. The ergonomic design combines a high specification imaging system within the wireless, handheld probe, which is small enough to fit comfortably into the patient’s mouth.
