Canary System Inventors Nominated for 2019 Manning Innovation Award

Stephen Abrams, DDS, and Andreas Mandelis, PhD, have been nominated for the 2019 Manning Innovation Award in recognition for their work in creating The Canary System. The Canary System by Quantum Dental Technologies is a laser-based device that can detect, measure, monitor and record changes in a tooth.  It can find small cavities and cracks in teeth before they are large enough to be seen on X-rays.  The Canary System is used in dental offices to find decay under old fillings, beneath sealants, braces, and crowns. Clinical trials have verified that The Canary System is more accurate than X-rays for detecting decay between teeth, according to the company

The Canary System has a camera, so patients can see the tooth surface, and a voice that reports on the findings of each examination. Canary examination results are easy to understand, unlike the small black patches on X-ray images, giving patients the confidence to accept treatment recommendations and the motivation to adhere to home management routines.

Since 1982, the Ernest C. Manning Awards Foundation has been building a culture of innovation in Canada by discovering, honouring and rewarding Canadian innovators of all ages, and across all sectors. As a national charity, they take great pride in their ability to discover and support home-grown innovation heroes.
