The deep penetrating power of the Identafi® 3000 ultra’s multiple wavelengths enhance efficiency for use in early oral cancer detection.

This technology uses Multi-Spectral Fluorescence and Reflectance technology to better see abnormalities such as oral cancer or premalignant dysplasia that may not be apparent to the naked eye. But unlike other fluorescence technologies and dye systems, this technology has three distinct color wavelengths, making it easier to distinguish problem areas reducing false positives.

But don’t worry. after any procedure N2O can be flushed out of the lungs within minutes meaning you won’t have that woosy feeling you get from other sedatives and can drive yourself home!

Icon

IconNorthgate Smiles now offers Icon treatments, which is great news for patients who would like unsightly white spots removed from their teeth. Better yet, Icon can be used to treat the onset of early cavities between teeth as well as on the smooth surfaces of teeth without drilling.

While Icon cannot be used to treat advanced decay, this treatment is effective during the initial stages of cavities and can stop further decay in its tracks. Icon treats these early cavities without pain and only entails gentle pressure as teeth are slightly separated with a dental wedge so that Icon treatment can be applied between teeth.
