New Painless Cavity Detection Method

Diagnodent is a new FDA approved laser cavity detector. The Diagnodent uses a painless laser that can detect cavities that traditional methods usually miss. Developed in Germany by Kavo Corporation, the Diagnodent detects cavities that lie below the surface and are easily missed with a dental explorer or dental pick. The Diagnodent is painless and emits an audible noise when a cavity is found. The Diagnodent can detect cavities on the surface of the tooth. Cavity detection X-rays are still required to find cavities in between teeth. The dentists at Main Family Dental Care employ the Diagnodent during routine examinations.
