Abstract

Dental caries is a bacteria-infected disease. After being illuminated by an excitation light, the by-products of oral bacteria, mainly porphyrins, can emit visible auto-fluorescence, which can be used as a marker for bacteria-infected dentin. Thus the auto-fluorescence signals have been employed as an aid for the differentiation between infected and affected dentin and monitoring caries excavation. In 2002 fluorescence-aided caries excavation (FACE) was invented as an excavation device to improve the efficiency and accuracy of caries removal.This study has investigated a recent version of FACE.
