The development of biosensors helps monitor and maintain the bacteria in your mouth.
There is finally a way to prove your hard work is paying off. Scientists and manufacturers have developed biosensors. This new technology can measure everything from electrical impulses in our brains, to bacteria on our skin and in our mouth.
At the USA Science & Engineering Festival, held last April in Washington D.C., the NIDCR presented a hands-on lab where children and adults could use a new biosensor to measure the amount of bacterial contamination on laboratory-controlled mouths. Attendees’ attention was piqued as they physically measured the results of various mouthwashes and brushing techniques. Read more about the festival here.
The NIDCR hopes this device will increase awareness of the importance of brushing and flossing. You will likely see these in dentists’ offices, hospitals, and school nurses’ offices before they
make it to the home market.
Ask us about our new technology, such as the 3D imaging system, or how we are able to detect cracks instantly using only near-infrared light.
At Chanhassen Family Dentistry we are extremely thankful to give you and your family the very best in dental technology and services. We look forward to your next visit.
