Diagnodent and Carivu Cavity Detection
DIAGNOdent is a small portable laser that allows us to detect hard to see cavities on the chewing surface of the back teeth. The laser is easy to use, harmless, and will alert us with an audible signal if it detects a cavity. It will even calculate the approximate size of the cavity so we can better plan treatment. Carivu is a device that uses transillumination technology to aid in the diagnosis of cracks and cavities in the teeth. Both tools are noninvasive and allow cavities to be accurately detected and treated in their infancy.
