Diagnodent

The Diagnodent is a diode laser that detects fluorescence in anything at which it is aimed. When enamel becomes decalcified (decays) the changed enamel will fluoresce. The diagnodent can thus be employed as an early decay warning system that can “see” into a tooth up to 2mm and detect changes well before a manually-employed dental pick can find the cavity. Often, catching the decay at this early stage will allow Dr. Dantini to treat the area using Air abrasion and placement of a flowable composite without the use of anesthetic ’s
