KaVo’s DIAGNOdent system measures changes in tooth structure to identify cavities (caries). This pen-like device is designed to detect sub-surface caries lesions that are otherwise hard to find. Why should you use a laser fluorescence detector in the dental office?
- Early Diagnosis Can Save Teeth – Untreated tooth decay can cause significant pain and discomfort. Catching it early can mean the difference between needing small restorations and serious damage repair. If left unchecked, tooth decay can cause severe infections that spread into oral tissue.
- Minimize the Restoration Area – The earlier you detect tooth decay, the smaller the restoration area will be. That translates to less cost and less discomfort for the patient. The treatment is less invasive when the condition is identified sooner rather than later.
- Recommend Sealants for Non-decay Areas – Sealants have been proven to reduce the risk of tooth decay in almost 80% of molars. The KaVo DIAGNOdent system can help you locate non-decay areas so you can make recommendations for sealant.
