Ipana Caries Indicators are a simple-to-use caries detector. Instead of messy squeeze bottles or syringes, caries indicator dye is pre-dried on a micro applicator. Simply touch it to a wet tooth surface to apply. No drip or mess that can stain clothing or soft tissue.

Ipana Caries Indicators are available in red or blue dye colours, pre-applied to either fine or extra-fine micro brush applicators.

  • Perfect for minimally invasive preps; allows you to identify and remove affected tooth structure, leaving healthy enamel and dentin
  • Single-use applicators makes tray set-up easy – simply place one on the tray – no syringe, no sheath, no tips to replace, no cross-contamination
  • Contains an FD&C dye in a propylene glycol base
  • Works by staining the by-products of carious lesions

Available in 2 indicator colors:

Red:

  • Enables better visibility, so you can see decay on stained dentin
  • Brighter and easier to see when light is reduced in the posterior
  • Better color contrast on darker decayed preps

Blue:

  • Easier to see decay on dentin with actively bleeding preps
  • Differentiate between decay and pulp in deep preps
  • Clearly see decay on preps where dentin decay is tooth-colored

Directions for Use:

  1. Remove a Caries Indicator applicator from the tube.
  2. Lightly wet the tip of the applicator with either water or the wet tooth surface.
  3. Apply the applicator to the prepared tooth.
  4. Rinse and examine the area for any Caries Indicator that remains on the affected dentine.
  5. Proceed as usual.
