Want To See How It Works?The DIAGNOdent device consists of a wand and a monitor. The wand delivers harmless laser energy to the tooth, which the monitor translates into readings. The higher the reading, the greater the level of present tooth decay.
The readings are generally interpreted as:
- 10 to 15: No cavity detected
- 15 to 30: Preventive care recommended
- 30 and up: Treatment recommended
DIAGNOdent helps detect underlying cavities
According to an article by Dentistry IQ, only 80 percent of cavities are visible on the biting surface of the tooth, meaning the remaining percentage are often left undetected and untreated.
When left untreated, dental decay continues to spread. The longer a pocket of decay or cavity is allowed to exist, the greater the chance of serious oral health concerns. When decay reaches the underlying structures of the tooth, you may need a root canal or worse, an extraction. By choosing a dentist who utilizes the advanced DIAGNOdent technology, you can increase the chances of early detection and stop decay from causing serious issues. Early detection and treatment can improve the look and health of your smile…
Traditional methods of cavity detection such as visual screenings and X-rays often miss cavities under the surface of the tooth. The DIAGNOdent™ system by KaVo uses laser fluorescence to detect cavities inside of the tooth at their earliest stages.

Will This Advanced Tool Make Your Visit More Expensive? your final costs will depend on the condition of your smile
The final cost of your office visit will largely depend on the condition of your smile. Because DIAGNOdent allows your dentist to detect decay before you need expensive or extensive treatment, you can generally expect to save money in the long run if you choose to undergo an exam with DIAGNOdent. If your dentist offers DIAGNOdent, he or she will inform you whether it is included in your exam costs.
