DIAGNOdent Laser By KaVo

DIAGNOdent is the future of dental decay detection, providing a highly accurate and reliable means of identifying dental caries. With DIAGNOdent, New Haven dentists can discover the beginnings of decay before it has a chance to progress. DIAGNOdent is capable of detecting even the tiniest of caries, pits and crevices that are potential sources of decay. It uses a special wavelength of light that causes bacteria and decayed tooth matter to fluoresce. The decay not only becomes visible, but a small audio effect helps ensure every questionable spot is identified. The DIAGNOdent laser technology is successful in detecting more than 9 out of 10 caries, allowing New Haven dentists to better monitor the progress of decay over time and also treat it early enough to preserve as much of the natural tooth structure as possible.

Where x-rays are 67 percent accurate and magnified exams are about 56 percent effective, DIAGNOdent is 90 percent effective, which improves outcomes. Even studies by the National Institutes of Health confirm that DIAGNOdent is more effective than conventional methods in detecting caries located within the enamel.
