Spectra is a handheld, noninvasive imaging instrument that visually aids in the detection of caries. Using exclusive fluorescence technology, LEDs project high-energy light onto the tooth surface, causing cariogenic bacteria to fluoresce. Software interpolated images of the tooth depict various stages of enamel and dentin caries in blue, red, orange, or yellow, while showing healthy enamel in green. It is an ideal complement to x-rays during patient exams, allowing you to capture, store, compare, and retain your Spectra images. It is the only handheld imaging device on the market that provides numerical and color readings to measure the extent of decay with unmatched precision. Support a minimally invasive treatment approach with simple, dependable, early caries detection. It is now FDA-cleared and includes a 3-year warranty.

SOPRO LIFE (Light-Induced Fluorescence Evaluator) is 2 devices in one; a high-end intraoral camera with excellent image quality that functions in 3 modes (portrait, intraoral, and macro) as well as a caries detection device. By depressing a single button, SOPRO LIFE switches its lighting from 4 white LEDs to 4 Blue LEDs, utilizing autofluorescence technology that allows users to see variations of a tooth’s dentin health state. It can be used for detection of caries for both occlusal and interproximal areas, which are often missed by traditional x-rays. It can also be used during the excavation process to assist the dentist, ensuring that all diseased tissue is removed while preserving as much healthy tooth structure as possible. SOPRO LIFE is not software-dependent and is backward-compatible to all SOPRO docking stations. For more information, call (800) 289-6367.
