The DIAGNOdent™ pen will show you where the decay lies. It works quickly and reliably. The laser fluorescence detector within the DIAGNOdent pen is a precise method for identifying fissure caries, proximal caries and periodontitis.
Sub-surface caries lesions can be extremely difficult to detect using an explorer, and the DIAGNOdent™ offers a perfect adjunct to the diagnostic arsenal. It is especially useful for pit and fissure areas - even when the outer tooth surface seems to be intact.
Within the decay model, the accuracy of diagnosing "hidden" occlusal caries is recognized to be a challenge. Your visual and radiographic evaluation can be significantly more accurate with the use of KaVo's DIAGNOdent™ laser caries detection aid.
