Pulpdent Corporation introduces Snoop Caries Detecting Dye. SNOOP assists the practitioner in making conservative cavity preparations and identifying hard to find caries. This dark purple dye provides strong contrast with both dentin and the pulp. It stains the outer layer of infected carious dentin, which should be removed. It will not stain inner "affected" dentin, which is capable of remineralizing and should not be removed. SNOOP`s propylene glycol formula is reported to be more accurate than water-based formulas. SNOOP is available through your dental dealer.
