Preventative Dentistry Using Lasers

Highly sensitive

The patented laser fluorescence method of KaVo DIAGNOdent works on the basis of the differing fluorescence between healthy dental substance and diseased dental substance. KaVo DIAGNOdent detects even the smallest lesions; using a number scale and an audible alert - it’s reliable and doesn't expose you to radiation. And there’s no probing, no scraping and no damage to healthy dental substance.
