SULPHID / Dentist's tool


Periodontitis is a genetic illness, whose preconditions are found in half the european population.

If untraeted, it gradually leads to tooth loss, but can also trigger rheumatoid-like symptoms, and increase the risk of stroke, heart attack, and diabetes.

If treated, the assessment of treatment quality was tedious, painful, inaccurate and slow, which is changed by the SULPHID system, which was developed with a dentists assistance.

The system consists of 4 probes, which are placed on the patient’s teeth and activated by bite. After removal, they are placed in the station, which reads the values and transmits them to the lab computer.
