Caries imaging device to launch at Yankee Dental Congress

Scotland-based dental imaging firm Calcivis will launch its handheld, wireless tooth decay dental imaging device at the 2024 Yankee Dental Congress, which is being held in Boston January 25-27.  

The launch of the device, which is designed to visualize enamel demineralization and can aid in identifying early carious lesions, will be a limited release available in the greater Boston area. The company’s U.S. headquarters are in Milton, MA.

The device uses a patented photoprotein that produces a short, low-level light when in the presence of free calcium ions released from an actively decaying tooth surface. An integrated intraoral sensor detects the light flash, presenting clinicians with a chairside demineralization map. The system can be used for adults and children ages 6 and older.

In preparation for its U.S. commercial rollout, Calcivis hired Jill McGregor as chief financial officer and Ronald Frezel as vice president of sales and marketing.
