Affordable, Accurate, Fast and Easy to Use!
Up until now, accurately diagnosing early occlusal caries has been a major diagnostic challenge for dental professionals. Radiographs often fail to detect occlusal caries until demineralization has extended to or beyond the middle third of the dentin. Visual inspection can be subjective when diagnosing questionable occlusal lesions.
The revolutionary Ortek-ECD immediately and accurately detects if highly prevalent occlusal lesions have initially breached the dentin-enamel junction, advanced further into the dentin, are confined to the enamel or are just affected by stain. The ECD immediately displays a quantitative digital caries score from 0-100 depending on the extent of decay into the dentin, if any.

The ECD may be the best in class of objective diagnostic instruments for pit and fissure decay in an era of caries monitoring. My findings are that it is a very precise diagnostic instrument. This device is ideal."John Graeber, DMD Soft Touch Laser Dentistry, NJ
An easy to use and efficacious instrument that aids in patient education, and increases treatment acceptance."Rebecca Geller, DDS Queens, NY
With the ECD, clinicians can detect carious lesions with a high degree of certainty at a very early stage, enabling timely and minimally invasive treatment."Dr. George Freedman, Technology & Innovations, Dentistry Today
The ECD takes the guesswork out of treating occlusal caries. I can now implement a treatment plan with confidence."Daniel Levitt, DDS Queens, NY
- Brian Rosen DDS
"The ECD provides more bang for the buck than any comparable device and is surprisingly accurate with no second guessing about stained fissures. Use it during hygiene for one day, do the operative, and find out for yourself!"
- Daniel J Poticny DDS
"The Ortek ECD has been a boon to my practice. Patients immediately accept this wonderful addition to my diagnostic regimen. The ECD paid for itself easily within the first day or two!"
- Michael D Stern DDS FAGD
"I have used the ECD on numerous patients, and it's extremely effective in detecting small cavitated lesions that may normally go untreated. The ECD scores are very reliable relative to the depth of the caries lesions."
- Dr. Derek Zimbardi DDS
"I have found the Ortek-ECD device to be one of my most useful go-to tools for the early detection of pit and fissure caries. It is easy to use and a great complement to an intraoral camera for patient communication and discussion regarding their oral health status."

I Have It - You Want It!
While clinical and radiographic examinations often reveal decay that requires treatment, there may be times when either the radiograph does not indicate anything or it’s inconclusive. This is where a great new device, the Ortek-ECD (electronic caries detection) can save the day, or rather, the tooth.
