Detectors, Dental Caries, Electrical Impedance
Definition : Dental caries detectors designed to determine the changes in electrical impedance as the result of microscopic pores developed in teeth. These devices typically consist of a sensor with an electric conductive strip that is applied to a tooth to circulate a small electrical current through it; and a unit which measures the changes in impedance and displays its value as an indicator of tooth decay. Electrical resistance dental caries detectors are intended mainly for diagnosis of early stage caries.
