Diagnodent: Cavity (Caries) Detection and Analysis

In the old days, cavity detection was routinely conducted with the jabbing, poking and probing that we as patients, don't particularly enjoy. Over the years, cavity detection dyes were developed to help with the diagnostic process. Using a dental explorer is still required however to rule out "false positives" that detection dyes are known for generating.

Diagnodent, a digital laser device favored by many dental practices, uses modern laser technology to detect and assess caries. The use of a dental explorer is significantly minimized and is minimally invasive. Records of digital assessments of given tooth structures enable a dentist to monitor the changes in decalcification, an indicator of caries development.
