DENTSPLY’s Midwest Caries I.D.™ detection handpiece provides clinicians with an accurate, easy-to-use, portable instrument to aid in identifying the presence of occlusal and interproximal caries in molars and pre-molars. The Midwest Caries I.D. detection handpiece uses infrared and red LEDs, as well as a fiber optic probe to distribute light to the exam area. The Midwest Caries I.D. detection handpiece then captures the resulting reflection and refraction from the enamel rods in the tooth.
