KaVo DIAGNOdent pen: No stress and highly informative. The combination of a classic probe and radiographs, usually provides adequate information for diagnoses. However, mechanical identification can damage healthy tooth tissue, inevitably leading to a restoration, which triggers pain and stress in patients. When X-rays are taken, the patient is exposed to avoidable radiation and X-rays are not reliable for the early detection of caries.
Contrastingly, the LASER fluore- scence method of the DIAGNOdent pen, is suitable for diagnosis of both caries and early detection of periodontitis, without X-rays and mechanical damage.
