Diagnodent - Advanced Dental Diagnostics
What is Diagnodent?
Diagnodent is a non-invasive,
painless tool used for detecting tooth decay
that is not yet visible and would otherwise
be undiagnosed by conventional methods
Leaders in the field of dental
research agree that, when used by
themselves, the traditional methods of
detecting tooth decay are inadequate and
outdated for modern dentistry.
With the flouridation of water and
improved oral hygiene standards, the very
nature of tooth decay has changed. Due
to these factors, most of our patients have
harder and more resistant tooth enamel,
which can conceal even aggressive decay if
it is under the tooth surface.
How Does it Work?
works by scanning your teeth to measure
fluorescence within your tooth structure.
Healthy teeth will have little or no
Teeth that have decay present will
have higher levels of fluorescence, which
are proportionate to how extensive the decay
is. Diagnodent translates these
fluorescence readings into a digital numeric
Also, these changes in
fluorescence and numeric value are emitted
as an audio signal which signals the
presence of decay as it goes up in tone.
How Can Diagnodent Benefit Me?
Because you can't treat what you
can't see, Diagnodent enables dentists to
more quickly diagnose decay and prevent
extensive damage to your teeth.
Diagnosing decay in an expeditious manner
also saves you, the patient, both time and
money by helping you to avoid the costly and
time-consuming dental treatments that
pervasive decay requires. Diagnodent
provides us a significant diagnostic
advantage and helps us to monitor and
protect your teeth where they are most
