CALCIVIS wins the Scottish Dental Award for Innovation
CALCIVIS is the winner of the Scottish Dental Award for Innovation 2018 and the team says it is “delighted to be recognised for its dedication to preventive, minimally invasive dentistry”.
The CALCIVIS imaging system is a first for dentistry, delivering a whole new concept to help practitioners detect demineralisation on tooth surfaces at its earliest and most reversible stages.
CALCIVIS Marketing Manager Justin Smith explained: “The CALCIVIS imaging system uses a luminescent photoprotein to identify free calcium ions and produces a glowing, visual map of active demineralisation at the chair side.
“Until now it has not been possible to visualise demineralisation in such a precise and effective way. This system helps dental professionals provide clear communication to patients of all ages and better engage them in a more effective oral health regime.
“The award-winning CALCIVIS imaging system enables practitioners to engage patients with customised information, helps them to understand their risk of dental caries and encourages them to improve oral health.”
