How Facelight works
Bacteria in dentine infected by caries leave behind metabolic products (porphyrins). When an exposed cavity is illuminated with violet light (wavelength
of 405 nm), these porphyrins show a red fluorescence, thereby indicating the significant areas for caries excavation.
Your advantages at a glance
More reliable caries detection
Visual detection of caries in opened cavities
at a glance
- Support for the selective, minimally invasive excavation
- Safety and minimal risk of caries recurrence
More reliable caries detectionAn examination with Facelight minimises the risk of recurrence of caries.
The Facelight light probe also provides important information for deciding how to treat Caries Profunda.The slender design of the Facelight light probe offers optimum access to the treatment site.
Flexible, non-contact and therefore painless application is guaranteed.High efficiency with caries excavation
High efficiency with caries excavation
Bacteria in dentine infected with caries leave metabolic by-products (porphyrins). They are not visible to the naked eye.
Dentine infected with caries is clearly visible in opened cavities when illuminated
with the Facelight light probe. The porphyrins present there fluoresce red,
while healthy tooth substance fluoresces green.

Facelight aids detection and monitoring of carious tooth substance, in particular in dentin, during the excavation
of previously opened cavities.
