Used Dental Caries Detection Laser | KaVo Diagnodent Pen (1024)

The KaVo DIAGNOdent Pen is a hand-held laser caries detection aid that measures changes in tooth structure caused by carries. It is especially useful for pit and fissure areas - even when the outer tooth surface seems to be intact. The DIAGNOdent pen is a tool that helps dentist's detect concretions or caries in teeth that have been thoroughly cleaned. The tooth substance is caused to fluoresce with a laser light. The DIAGNOdent pen recognises this fluorescence and the differences between healthy and diseased tooth substance is displayed by the DIAGNOdent pen.
