Cavity Detection System

DIAGNOdent by Kavo is a laser-based diagnostic tool that allows us to detect caries or cavities that might otherwise be missed using traditional diagnostic tools. It is especially useful in detecting caries that have begun to form underneath the enamel surface, but which are not yet developed enough to show up even on our powerful digital x-ray system.

DIAGNOdent consists of a pen with a digital reading that we use to scan your teeth.

When it detects a possible cavity, you’ll hear a beeping and will be able to see the digital reading displayed. Not only does it detect caries at a very early stage, but also involves you in the process of detection and enables us to determine the most conservative treatment approach.
