When it comes to cavity detection, it's usually left up to dental professionals to spot problem areas, so the Ortek ECD is designed to help gain a more comprehensive idea of oral health. The Ortek ECD -- standing for Early Cavity Detection -- uses an electrical impulse to seek out breaks in the enamel. If a break is detected, the dentist is notified and a closer inspection and potential filling is practiced.

Developed by Ortek Therapeutics, the Ortek ECD is said to be 100% effective at detecting early signs of cavities, which is key to ensuring problems don't progress. The cavity detection technology is being researched for commercial opportunities with the brand also looking into becoming FDA-approved.
