An enlightening innovation
Automatic detection by DETECTAR relies on the specific spectral signature of subgingival calculus. Light that reflects off the tartar is sensed by an optical fiber, and converted into an electrical signal to be analyzed. A computer processing algorithm is used to determine whether the DETECTAR probe has found calculus.
Easy to use
The DETECTAR probe operates in the same manner as a periodontal probe. The diameter of the DETECTAR probe is the same as that of a conventional probe.
It can be used to probe gingival pockets gently and continually. When the system detects the presence of calculus, a light at the end of the probe lights up, and the casing emits a sound signal.
