Electrically Accelerated&Enhanced Remineralisation
Mesial (contacting) surface of an extracted premolar with a small (white) carious lesion in the ten o’clock position.
A reconstructed 3-D image with the enamel layer made transparent to show the full extent of the carious lesion (in red) before EAER treatment.
The same tooth with an overlay of the lesion before and after treatment. The faint red colouring indicates the lesion prior to treatment and the dark red colouring indicates the size of the lesion after EAER treatment.
The lesion has reduced considerably in size after EAER treatment owing to the deposition of minerals within the lesion. (Images: SIMBIOS/Abertay University Dundee)
A reconstructed 3-D image of the same tooth with the lesion false-coloured in red (and white).
