Dental Materials, Caries Detection, Dye

Definition : Dental materials designed to aid in the identification of bacterially infected dentin (i.e., caries), so that it can be more effectively removed. These dental materials consist of staining solutions (i.e., dyes such as propylene glycol) which stain the organic matrix of less mineralized dentin to produce visible contrast that will assist the dentist in the removal of less obvious caries; they do not stain the bacteria. Caries detection dyes are available in a variety of colors; they are used in dentists' offices.
