If you cannot detect the disease, how can you treat it? 

Dentists often experience anxiety when attempting to diagnose the phenomenon known as hidden caries. A suspicious-looking tooth presents a treatment dilemma for dentists. Should the tooth be opened up? What if no caries is found? Should the tooth just be watched, or does that give caries more time to destroy the tooth’s surface?

A changing cavity model: due to fluoridation, cavities have gone “underground”. While helping to improve the oral health of many Americans, fluoridation has resulted in harder tooth enamel. Incipient caries lesions that once began on the tooth’s surface have no migrated below the surface.

Proven clinical results: Treatment decisions require a higher degree of certainty. The DIAGNOdent laser caries detection aid removes the doubt from treatment decisions regarding hidden caries ore questionable stained grooves. The device’s ability to see into pits and fissures of a tooth enables dentists to treat sub-surface caries lesions with confidence.

Over 90% accurate

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.
 Precise results without x-ray exposure.
