LumiCare™ Caries Detection Rinse


LumiCare™ Caries Detection Rinse represents the avant-garde of preventive dental care. The LumiCare™ Rinse is a water-based solution containing patented fluorescent sub-micron starch particles that have been functionalized to target and adhere to the subsurface of early-stage carious lesions after penetrating through surface porosities.

Each LumiCare™ Caries Detection Rinse box contains 20 pouches.

Use Cases

Finding Incipient Lesions

Every cavity begins as an initial spot of demineralization. As the demineralization progresses and causes further developments of the carious lesion, eventually the tooth structure will collapse resulting in a cavity. LumiCare™ Caries Detection Rinse can help you visualize these early carious lesions, allowing for the application of preventive treatments and cavity prevention.

Evaluating suspicious areas

Some spots of demineralization are hard to diagnose. Is that caries or is that something else? LumiCare™ Caries Detection Rinse illuminates carious lesions providing further confidence for you and your patients. The rinse does not illuminate arrested caries that have stopped progressing, fluorosis, or hypomineralization [Amaechi et al. 2023 BMDJ Open]. Fundamentally, if the particles cannot get in, the area of concern will not illuminate. However, if it’s a white spot that is actively progressing with open porosity, the lesion will illuminate. The same targeting technology is used in the CrystLCare™ product to support delivery of minerals where needed and improve treatment efficacy.

Evaluating the outcome of caries treatment

There are many ways to treat caries but there are few ways to know whether the administered treatment has restored the affected enamel. LumiCare™ Caries Detection Rinse will help you determine if your treatment successfully arrested the carious lesion.

“It takes it from the realm of ‘I think you have an early lesion’ to ‘I know you have an early lesion.’”

“The ability for us to identify caries before it’s clinically
perceptible is a huge step in the right direction for the
dental industry. LumiCare Caries Detection Rinse from
GreenMark Biomedical prioritizes taking preventive
measures to reduce the need for caries-related
restorations. Would you want a restoration if the
progression of caries could be identified and stopped?
No? Neither would I!”
