Laser Cavity Detection

Laser Cavity Detection

Identifying and preventing problems or treating them in their earliest stages is one of the most important things we can do for our patients. We have significantly improved our ability to diagnose cavities in their early stages with the incorporation of the DIAGNOdent laser caries detection aid.

Reliable, Accurate Caries Detection Aid

More and more patients place value on healthy and attractive teeth. In order to maintain them, the earliest possible care is essential. DIAGNOdent aids in the detection of caries. Even very small lesions and incipient caries can be detected, enabling you to protect and preserve the tooth substance.
