TORONTO—New clinical research findings were announced last week in Boston at the International Association of Dental (IADR) Research General Session.

Dr. Ben Amaechi from the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, led an independent clinical study and found The Canary System to exhibit superior performance compared to bitewing radiography for the detection of proximal caries.

Thirty subjects from a mixed population of caries risk patients were involved in the study. The authors of the study found the sensitivity/specificity of The Canary System to be 0.92/0.78 versus 0.67/0.54 for bitewing radiography. They concluded that The Canary System is more accurate than bitewing radiography for proximal caries diagnosis.

“Bitewing radiographs and visual examination have been considered the gold standard for caries detection but this study along with others demonstrate that The Canary System should become the next gold standard for the detection and monitoring of tooth decay”, said Dr. Stephen Abrams, President of Quantum Dental Technologies, the manufacturer of The Canary System.

The Canary System, with crystal structure diagnostics, allows oral health professionals to detect, image, track and monitor tooth decay on all tooth surfaces, beneath opaque sealants, around the margins of restorations and detect cracks in teeth.  

The accompanying Canary Cloud enables dentists to view and manage this data in an online environment, track Canary usage in the office, and keep up-to-date on Canary products and clinical news. With The Canary System, caries detection is not simply shining a light on a tooth surface but it’s about gathering accurate information on the status of the tooth’s crystal structure and then storing it to allow ongoing analysis and monitoring.
