Say Goodbye to Undetected Caries

Caries diagnosis is one of the most important diagnostic skills that oral healthcare professionals must learn; and yet, it remains one of the most difficult skills to reliably and predictably master with the human eye. Many studies estimate that 20-40% of caries remain undetected in the clinic.

By using AI powered caries detection technology to assist them, dentists can find many of the dental caries that currently get missed. AI powered technology instantly identifies areas on dental x-rays that have a high probability of caries, alerting dentists to focus more closely on these areas in their clinical examination.
