Studies show that 50% of tooth decay goes undetected by present diagnostic methods. The new KaVo DIAGNOdent aids in diagnosing hidden decay more accurately and confidently. Most tooth decay occurs in the complex anatomy on the chewing surfaces where deep pits and grooves are difficult to keep clean. This also makes diagnosis with traditional methods difficult because the outer tooth surface often appears to be intact.
The DIAGNOdent is a new high tech laser system. It utilizes laser light of a defined wavelength to help detect and quantify demineralized tooth substances without x-ray exposure. This revolutionary new device is easy to use and turns caries detection into a harmless, measurable, more reproducible and exacting procedure.
With DIAGNOdent the doctor will be able to make better treatment decisions earlier, whether they call for further watching of suspect areas to monitor changes, preventive measures or placing a small filling. With the new KaVo DIAGNOdent we are able to detect the invisible.
