Microlux Transilluminator

Illuminate and view teeth in 3D. Go from opaque to translucent and revealing cracks, craze lines, fissures and more, instantly!

The fiber optic light guide is a high quality image grade glass light guide designed to focus the LED light at the output. The light guide can be wiped with disinfectant, cold sterilized, autoclaved, or heat sterilized. It is not recommended they be chemclaved.

Simply place the fiber optic probe adjacent to the oral structure under examination and the passage of the light through the tissue is proportional to the translucency of each material. Caries, calculus, cracks and the orifice of root canals do not transmit as much light as healthy enamel or dentin and appears darker.

Dental Trans-illuminator features:

  • Autoclavable light guide, available in 2mm and 3mm
  • High output L.E.D
  • Battery Operated
  • Portable and easy to use
  • Protective Sleeves available

Root Fracture

Root fractures can often be detected by using the Endo Fiber tip. Place it either bucally or lingually in the gingival sulcus. A fracture line will apprear dark via transillumination from the outside to the inside of the canal.
