The K-Lite is a ground breaking dental device that allows the removal of excess or unwanted dental materials such as composites or adhesives. Some of the examples include orthodontic brackets, attachments and retainers, residual cements etc.

Its use in dental trauma (Splint) and/or in the so-called Fluorescence-assisted Identification Technique (FIT). These two objectives were the motivation for the author to develop and produce the K-Lite in cooperation with Smile Line SA.

It can assist in the identification of certain bacterial byproducts found in plaque, calculus and in infected dentine.

Modern dental composites and adhesives contain fluorophores which help in producing better aesthetic results. This gives them a fluorescent property.

Under certain wavelengths of illumination ( UV-A 395 to 400nm), these materials can be distinguished from tooth tissue. Therefore, significantly reducing risk of iatrogenic tooth damage when they
need to be removed.

The dual portable flashlight has been designed to achieve the aim guided by a glass fibre optic, which consists of :

– a White LED (6000 °K) for translumination (i.e. visualisation of opalescence, crack lines and fractures).
– a UV-A LED (violet light) that, when directed onto composites or adhesives with fluorescent components, calculus or plaque, it makes them easier to detect.

This way, it helps you to precisely remove them avoiding iatrogenic damage to the healthy underlying

The aim of a minimal invasive dentistry is to preserve as much of the sound tooth tissue as possible. Studies have shown that whilst you are careful in removing excess or unwanted dental materials from tooth tissue, with little guidance this could lead to either excess tooth tissue removal and/or to retention of unwanted dental material.

After extensive research and development, a solution to the common problems described above can be achieved using K-Lite.

The K-Lite, backed by clinical trials, is a high quality, efficient, effective and affordable solution to the problems outlined above.
