Best New Product Award


Calcivis is a business that is working to revolutionise dental care by enabling true preventive dentistry. To this end, the business has created a tooth-imaging device designed to provide accurate, real-time visualisation of decay (caries) on a tooth. Uniquely the system incorporates a biologic imaging agent to detect ongoing demineralisation. For the first time dentists will be able to see whether caries are progressing or not, which is fundamental to deciding what type of action may be required. Providing this information to dental practitioners is a major aid to preventive treatment, improving communication and early decision making, making it possible to reverse damage early, and stopping teeth from reaching the point where they require fillings - preserving patients’ time, money and dental health.
