The Canary System is a low-powered laser-based tool for the detection of early tooth decay. Powered by the energy conversion technology of PTR-LUM, The Canary System uses a novel combination of heat and light to directly examine the crystal structure of teeth and map areas of tooth decay. The Canary System is a revolutionary new tool that can detect, map and monitor carious lesions on any tooth surface, including interproximal lesions. The Canary system detects tooth decay along the margins of restorations, including amalgam and composite resins, and beneath fissure sealants. It detects lesions earlier than x-rays up to 5 mm beneath the tooth surface. The Canary System's interactive software and printed patient reports engage patients in their own oral healthcare.
The innovation behind the core technology of The Canary System is the product of over 12 years of research and development, accounted by 50+ peer-reviewed journal articles, 6 patent families, and proven by two Health Canada-regulated investigational trials.
"With Sinclair Dental's presence in all of the key city centres, this gives QDT the reach across Canada to satisfy the interest we're getting in The Canary System from Vancouver to Halifax", said Dr. Josh Silvertown, Vice President of Corporate Development of QDT.
"Sinclair Dental is very excited to introduce such an innovative product to our clients and give them one more tool to help discover decay at its earliest stages", said Lynn Nadin, Director of High Tech Sales at Sinclair Dental.
