Oral health is an important part of our life which is necessary for processing food as well as maintaining a beautiful smile.
Maintaining good oral health is important for every individual since it has consequences on
both our physical and psychological well-being. Dental caries for example can result in pain
when biting or chewing food, while enamel discoloration can tarnish a smile and result in a
loss of self-confidence. Presently, only a small fraction of the global population takes
adequate care of their oral health, which is usually only achieved with frequent and costly
visits to the dentist for proper diagnosis and preventative treatment.
Our idea is to create an affordable, portable, reliable, and easy-to-use medical imaging device that can provide early stage diagnosis of common oral diseases utilizing UV spectral imaging technology.
