With conventional instruments, it is generally not possible to probe narrow groves, drop-shaped fissures or deep pits on the chewing surface of your teeth.
DIAGNOdent scans your teeth with harmless pulses of laser light.
DIAGNOdent measures the fluorescence reflected from the hidden decay in deep regions of your tooth as the laser light is reflected even through very small openings. Precise results without radiation exposure.
