Detecting Cavities With DIAGNOdent

Tooth decay is caused by a variety of things; in medical terms, cavities are called caries, which are caused by long-term destructive forces acting on tooth structures such as enamel and the tooth's inner dentin material. With conventional instruments, it is generally not possible to probe drop-shaped fissures. DIAGNOdent has the great advantage of detecting caries in the very early stage by measuring the laser fluroescence within the tooth structure.
 Which means you will get extremely precise results without x-ray exposure.
