Why the Ortek-ECD?

Until now, accurately diagnosing early occlusal caries has been a significant challenge. But with the FDA cleared Ortek-ECD, you have a reliable solution at your fingertips.

Cutting-Edge Technology - 100% Sensitivity, 93% Specificity
The Ortek-ECD boasts breakthrough Electronic Conductance Technology, developed and tested at a US Dental School. This technology takes the guesswork out of diagnosing occlusal lesions, ensuring you get accurate results every time.

Immediate Results
The Ortek-ECD immediately and accurately detects the status of occlusal lesions, including:
• Whether they have breached the dentin-enamel junction.
• If they have advanced into the dentin.
• Whether they are confined to the enamel.
• If they are merely affected by stain

Quantitative Digital Caries Score
The Ortek-ECD doesn't stop at detection; it provides a quantitative digital caries score ranging from 0 to 100, indicating the extent of decay into the dentin. No more guesswork; you'll have precise information to guide your treatment decisions

How Ortek-ECD Technology Works

Revolutionary Caries Detection
The Ortek-ECD utilizes innovative electronic conductance technology that sets it apart from other systems. It's fast, user-friendly, portable, and requires minimal training, making it an indispensable tool for dental professionals.

The Process Simplified

Prepare the Surface:
Begin by thoroughly cleaning and drying the occlusal surface of the tooth under examination.

Place the Conductive Tip:

The Ortek-ECD features a novel single patient use conductive tip. Position it at the bottom of a pit or fissure on the tooth's surface.

Hydrostatic Magic:

Here's where the magic happens. If the demineralization has breached the dentin-enamel junction, hydrostatic pressure within dentinal tubules allows tiny amounts of conductive dentinal fluid to enter the breached enamel site. This sets the stage for the Ortek-ECD® to complete an electrical circuit.

Detecting Caries Activity:
As caries continue to develop, they cause further loss of minerals from the enamel. This results in increased porous size and enamel porosity. The Ortek-ECD® is on the lookout for dentinal fluid, and the more it detects, the higher the caries score.

Instant Results and Precision:
With a reassuring audible beep, the Ortek-ECD instantly displays a quantitative digital caries score ranging from 00 to 100. This score depends on the extent of decay into the dentin, if any. Intact tooth enamel is a good insulator and is electrically nonconductive. When the enamel at the bottom of a pit or fissure is intact, the circuit path is opened, and no current can flow, indicating a non-cavitated lesion or just a stained enamel surface.

After cleaning and drying the occlusal surface, gently place the conductive tip at the bottom of a pit or fissure.

The ECD instantly displays a quantitative caries score from 01-100. A zero score indicates a non cavitated lesion or a sound enamel site.

Benefits of Ortek-ECD

Early Intervention: Preserve more tooth structure by catching caries at their earliest stages.

Trust in precise results that guide your treatment decisions with confidence.

Boost Your Revenue:
The Ortek-ECD can become a new profit center for your practice, with a return on investment in just days.

Case Studies

A 22-year-old patient was complaining of tooth sensitivity when eating sweets. Clinical examination showed obvious decay in the disto-occlusal pit on the maxillary first molar (site 3). Upon further examination, the mesio-occlusal pit was suspicious (site 2), but there was no evidence of cavitation from visual and radiographic methods, making a treatment decision difficult. A second mesio-occlusal pit appeared sound (site 1).

Prior to initial preparation through the enamel layer, the ECD gave the following readings: Site 1: 00, site 2: 04, and site 3: 93. In this case, the ECD scores proved extremely reliable relative to the depth of the caries lesions and the indication of a sound enamel site. More importantly, the ECD was very effective in detecting a small cavitated occlusal lesion that may have normally gone untreated.

In this case, a 49 year old male was examined during a routine dental exam: Teeth 28 and 29 displayed discoloration possibly due to staining. BW X- rays were taken and there was no sign of cavitation. Prior to preparation, the ECD provided caries scores of 10 for tooth 28, and a reading of 11 for tooth 29.

After administration of local anesthesia, a 556 burr was used. Decay was detected, excavated and restored. Note that the decay did not spread laterally, instead it progressed deeper and deeper into the dentin. If the caries found by the ECD were not detected, it's possible further decay progression on these teeth could lead to endodontic treatment overtime.

In this case, a 38 year old female was examined during a routine dental exam: Teeth 20 and 21 displayed discoloration possibly due to staining. BW X- rays were taken and there was no sign of cavitation. Prior to preparation, the ECD provided caries scores of 0 for tooth 21, and a reading of 8 for tooth 20.

After administration of local anesthesia, decay was detected and excavated. The depth of the decay in tooth 20 was over 2mm. Tooth 21 will be monitored, as the zero score by the ECD indicated that the lesion did not extend into the dentin.
