DIAGNOdent is a laser dental instrument for finding cavities on the surface of a tooth. Used along with x-rays that search around and under the tooth, early detection of cavities is most successful. The laser actually boasts a 90% rate of accuracy.
The laser scans areas of the mouth most susceptible. When a cavity is discovered, it beams a light, and beeps. The more pervasive the damage, the brighter the light, and the faster the beeping becomes. The process allows Centennial cosmetic dentistry an immediate assessment, which means easier appointments, and less expenses for the patient.
