Have you ever wondered how a dentist could find a new cavity that he missed just six months before, yet when the filling was placed it turned out to be quite large? Most likely, the cavity can be too small to appear in x-rays. By the time the cavity does appear, it may have taken a heavy toll on the good tooth structure.
The DiagnoDent laser scanner detects new cavities years before any other means of cavity detection. DiagnoDent shines a harmless laser beam into the tooth which reflects back. If tooth decay is present, even in small amounts, the DiagnoDent sensor will alert the doctor.
DiagnoDent even indicates how much tooth decay is present.
We find cavities, big or small, much earlier, so we conserve much more of the strong, healthy tooth!
