Diagnodent Caries Detection System

The Diagnodent caries detection system utilizes a high tech laser fluorescence caries detection aid which measures changes in the tooth structure caused by caries. It is a gentle treatment that is non invasive and preserves tooth structure. It is especially useful for pit and fissure areas even when the tooth structure seems to be intact. It has been proven to be over 90% accurate in detecting incipient tooth decay. The device itself and it's use is completely painless and uses a number scale and an audible alert. It 's extremely reliable and does not expose the patient to unnessary radiation. There is no probing, no scraping and no damage to healthy dental substance with it's use. We like to use this system especially on the chewing surfaces of the teeth before applying sealants or if we suspect decay in the chewing surfaces of the teeth.
