“The simplicity and sophistication of ... (the) SoproLIFE is unmatchable. It has changed the way I operate as a dentist. The images it provides me and the patient is unlike any other product I have used before. The details it shows in the pictures makes detecting cavities easier than it ever has been before! Me and my practice would be at a severe disadvantage if we didn't use ...the cavity finder from SoproLife.”
Dr. Shane R. Costa, DDS Great Falls and Brambleton, VA - Private Practice
The SOPROLIFE combines an intraoral camera providing exceptional detail with caries detection into one device making caries detection easier. Additionally, SOPROLIFE enhances my skills as a dentist by enabling me to detect caries earlier and more conservatively remove decay. SOPROLIFE is a valuable tool to thoroughly examine teeth for caries and fractures.

SoproLIFE is an outstanding adjunct to traditional cavity detecting methods. It's high resolution intra-oral camera gives crystal clear images and with the press of a button, it becomes a high tech, accurate, cavity detection unit.
SoproLIFE is a winner and needs to be in every dental office.

It is an effective device with three mode capturing system, which is helping me to diagnose and capture the carious lesions including early lesions with excellent magnified view. This, in turn, is quite helpful to make the best possible treatment strategies for my patients.
Thanks to its “red fluorescence” which is helpful in taking right decisions about cavity depth by clearly differentiating between healthy and diseased tissues.
Moreover, with the images directly seen on computer screen, both the patient motivation and cooperation has improved multifold.
It’s truly become a necessary tool in my practice today!!

Ever since all times, it is one of the hardest challenges for every dentist, not only to diagnose caries, but to remove it completely, residue-free and minimal-invasive.
Most of the systems that were offered in the market, like laser-based methods, elder fluorescence-cameras, CDI (Electric Current Density Imaging), caries-detector-fluids and similar, were cost-intensive, unhandy or very unspecific and did not assist the dentist adequate in his work life.
With the LIFE-D.T.-System (LIFE = Light Induced Fluorescence Evaluator), that was now in the SoproLife for the first time integrated in an intraoral camera, we have a system, that is unbeatable in suppleness and handling.
The different fluorescence-phenomenon of teeth and porphyrine, a precipitate of bacteria, are that obviously different (healthy = green, infected = red), that a short view is enough, to evaluate the situation.
That gives us on the one hand the possibility to explain to the patient, which treatment is necessary, to recognize initial lesions that can not be seen in x-ray-pictures and beyond that to control the result of the excavation.
As there is no time needed to get familiar with the system, it is possible to easily integrate the SoproLife into everyday’s workflow and within no time it gets an indispensable part of the treatment course.
Dr. Henrik-Christian Hollay
In addition to relying upon the skills of the general practitioner, the clinical success of our conservative or prosthetic work is intimately linked to our visual capacity.
However, the latter tends, in reality, to be poor and the use of magnifying glasses (2.5x) becomes absolutely essential in order make it easier to see and, in so doing, to give us a better understanding.
Here, we touch on the very heart of what the SOPROLIFE camera is all about. Not only does it give far better magnification (> 50x), but its fluorescent mode enables us to distinguish between the various tissues affected by caries.
In mode I (diagnostic) caries can be picked up right at the outset, whilst in mode II (treatment) this surgical tool is so effective that it has made itself indispensable. The winning feature of this device is the way in which fluorescence has been combined with image amplification.
This tool has truly become an essential feature of daily practice, enabling general practitioners not only to deliver better care, but also to be able to discuss cases better with their patients, presenting themselves in an even better light in the process.

For a number of years, I have been aiming for minimally invasive prophylactic practice when dealing both with caries and with parodontics.
I chose SOPROLIFE for its diagnostic system (LIFE-DT), which is far more powerful than the one that I had been using previously.
However, it became clear very soon that its strengths can be put to many different uses and this camera has now become an essential part of my daily practice.
I have re-designed the ergonomics at my workplace so that I can have it ready at any time. What could be easier for keeping a constant watch over my treatments and over my restorative, endodontic and prosthetic work!
From now on, I will be able to "get right inside the lesion", to understand how it is developing and how it is organised, also to take the right treatment decision and to monitor my technique. For me, this is still "magic" after so many years of fumbling around to find a satisfactory solution.

The carious lesion is not visible under white light
The fluorescence image shows a demineralization on the marginal mesial ridge compared to the opposite ridge.
The radiography confirms the presence of the carious lesion of stage 3.
Under white light, the entry point of the caries and the cavity can be seen.
The fluorescence image shows the demineralized enamel, the destructured and the infected dentine.
At the end of the preparation, the fluorescence image shows the all the infected dentine was removed.
