  • The Digitisation of Caries Activity

    As we are all undoubtedly aware, dental caries can cause tooth loss, the formation of abscesses and the development of periodontal disease.  Caused by the demineralisation of a tooth’s enamel structure, caries can be avoided with appropriate preventive care and a good personal oral hygiene routine.  However, in order to treat dental caries preventively, patients and dental professionals must identify it early, before cavitation becomes irreversible.
