Dr. Davis uses a new technology
that detects hidden decay where it can be eliminated in the early
Locating hidden decay before it destroys tooth
structure (from the inside out) is a big problem in modern
dentistry. Diagnosing cavities is more challenging because the
disease process can start through microscopic defects in the hard
surface enamel and can readily spread into the softer tooth
structure beneath the surface.
DIAGNODENT provides instant feedback on the health
of the tooth. A pen like probe simply glides over tooth surfaces
constantly checking the health of the tooth. A number scale and an
alarm signals the operator when there are signs of hidden decay.
