Digital Cavity Detector

Tooth decay can be extremely painful and puts the teeth at risk.  Many extractions and restorative treatments are performed every single day because tooth decay has become too severe for the dentist to save the tooth.  The Diagnodent® is a safe fluorescent laser that detects hidden tooth decay accurately, quickly, and in its earliest stages.

The Diagnodent® process is performed within the scope of a regular dental checkup.  It is strikingly similar to having a laser pointer aimed at the teeth.  The  Diagnodent® is a hi-tech tool, which first scans a clean tooth surface with a laser beam.  This scanning procedure serves to calibrate the instrument by providing information about the tooth structure.

How can the Diagnodent® help me?

The Diagnodent® accurately diagnoses more cavities than X-rays and examinations.  In fact, this revolutionary diagnostic tool is over 90% accurate.  Because the Diagnodent® exposes carities earlier, more treatment options are possible.

Here are some of the other benefits associated with the Diagnodent®:

  • Allows dentists to perform treatment with greater confidence.
  • Allows for the investigation of suspicious areas.
  • Completely safe.
  • Cost effective.
  • Empirically measurable results.
  • Helps reduce future dental procedures.
  • More accurate than any other diagnostic tool.
  • No exposure to X-rays.
  • No need for invasive investigations.
  • No discomfort whatsoever.
