Tripple win Oral Qamera Pen in de tandartspraktijk

Oral Qamera has a positive impact on society, the clinical world and the consumer. It is a triple win. Below we explain why.


If we, as a society, want to keep healthcare affordable, adjustments in our behaviour will be necessary. This means that the focus should be on preventing diseases rather than curing them. The world of dentistry is no exception, even here the emphasis will need to be placed on prevention. With the arrival of Oral Qamera this is entirely possible. With this new technology, plaque and cavities can be detected quickly, easily and safely. Earlier detection ensures that the chance of drilling is kept to a minimum. Oral Qamera also allow dental experts to accurately monitor oral health so that a patient file is automatically built up. By actively deploying Oral Qamera, in the EU alone we can save EUR 52 billion in costs directly related to dentistry every year. And all the other costs that arise from problems in the mouth have not even been mentioned.


Oral Qamera is the solution to improve servicing all different target audiences. With children aged 5 to 25, it becomes possible to take brushing to a higher level by providing targeted advice and brushing instructions based on QLF photos. Oral Qamera is the best way to build a long-term relationship with this specific group. Older patients, who have not visited their own dentist for a long time, can be actively approached to become familiar with Oral Qamera. All this under the message of ‘new style dentistry’. Involving this group with dentistry practices again, will ensure that these people can enjoy their own teeth for longer and will significantly decrease the risk of other health complications. Then there is one group that is really terrified on the dentist. Based on Oral Qamera, we have developed a protocol which makes it possible for this target audience to find their way back to the dentist. We do this by emphasizing preventive action instead of invasive action. Oral Qamera ensures that the clinical world can optimize care and simultaneously grow sustainably.


Brushing smarter reduces the risk of cavities. Fewer cavities means benefiting longer from your own teeth and fewer health complications later in life. Oral Qamera will soon be introducing a smart scanner for consumers that can detect young dental plaque. This means that you will know within eight hours whether you have brushed properly. Knowing that, the consumer also knows if he must pick up his toothbrush, pick his teeth, etc., again. Brushing in an improved matter also means that one is less anxious to go to the dentist, because you know that you have done everything to keep your teeth in paramount (top kan ook, vind paramount mooier) condition. In addition, by keeping your teeth healthy you decrease the chance of cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s for example.



I am on a whisper boat in the Biesbosch and I look at nature. A guide points out the presence of a few beavers. They lie on their backs, with a piece of wood between their paws. It is a beautiful sight. The guide advises us to come back in the future in a canoe, because it gives you more time to observe them calmly. It was a special experience. Without that guide we mainly would have looked at the alluring nature around us, but perhaps never seen those beavers.

Looking is different from seeing. Looking can be from a distance or perhaps serve more as a summarising view. But if something is pointed out, one can start seeing instead of just looking. See where the details lie. What sets them apart from the overall image. Details that are special and provide you with insights or turn out to be thought-provoking.

When I look at a set of teeth, with my healthy human eyes, I judge something with air and light to see better. It requires knowledge and skill, technique and effort. Distinguishing between healthy and not healthy makes the practitioner someone who sees and not just looks.

Despite my attentive eyes, I was grateful for that guide on the whisper boat. He neatly pointed out a number of details, which I might have found myself if I had looked long enough. But by pointing us in this direction, we could spend our time seeing details which otherwise would have been missed. The boat would have calmly sailed past, while we were looking at the nature.

Tools that let us see, rather than look, are a blessing. They provide quicker insights in the available time frame to set our sights on. After all, the boat progresses slowly. Oral Qamera with QLF technology is like that guide who pointed me to the beavers. Or even better, the use of the canoe on our next visit to Biesbosch. See instead of looking. Completely independent.

Four steps towards a world without caries

With the arrival of Oral Qamera it becomes possible to one day wake up in a world without caries. In that new world, no one has to worry about the health of our mouths and the mouth is seen by many specialists as the mirror of the body. Everyone knows the first three steps. The fourth step is new. Because with Oral Qamera, everyone at home can immediately check whether they have cleaned properly. Young plaque is immediately visible and can therefore be tackled effectively. Below are the four steps.

Step 1

Of course, it starts with brushing your teeth. Brush twice a day for 2 minutes with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, preferably with an electric toothbrush.

Step 2

After brushing, interdental cleaning is almost a mandatory step. Clean the surfaces between your teeth once a day with floss, toothpicks or brushes.

Step 3

Plaque is stubborn and therefore it is recommended to rinse daily with mouthwash. Rinse with 20 ml for 30 seconds twice a day.

Step 4

Quick and easy check for plaque. Anyone can do it. Check with Oral Qamera twice a day whether all plaque has disappeared. If plaque remains, start again with step 1.

In the clinical world there is already a Qamera available to detect plaque. We currently have a scanner available for the consumer market that makes old plaque visible. The Oral Qamera Smart Scanner that highlights young plaque is expected to be available at the end of 2021. Contact us for more information.




Dentists are trained to solve problems in the mouth, but then you are always chasing the fact. Being ahead of trouble is always better. With the arrival of Oral Qamera, oral care specialists are given the opportunity to work preventively.


Oral Qamera will ensure that what dentistry entails will be completely different. Oral Qamera, based on QLF technology, makes it possible to make plaque visible. This makes it possible to effectively tackle dental plaque – the cause of caries, gingivitis and periodontitis – so that teeth remain healthy for a lifetime. With the arrival of Oral Qamera, the step from cure to care, i.e. from dentistry to oral care, is a fact.


With Oral Qamera, the direct and indirect healthcare costs, which are created by dental plaque will be reduced. In addition, Oral Qamera makes it possible to create an up-to-date and complete patient file. This increases the quality of care because a personal care plan can be made for each patient. Such a plan ensures that drilling is kept to a minimum. Want to know more? Please contact us.




Taking an X-ray is of course never good for your health. That is why your dentist does not take a picture every time. The x-ray the dentist uses to determine the health of your teeth does not reveal important information. For example, plaque cannot be seen, while it is precisely the beginning of serious diseases that are closely linked to bad teeth.
