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.
