The DIAGNOdent Pen, from KaVo Dental, is a handheld device that uses a laser fluorescence detector to identify dental caries, or cavities, in the mouth. It is particularly effective in detecting fissure caries, proximal caries and periodontitis, which is a serious gum infection.
At Cirocco Dental Center, we utilize the DIAGNOdent Pen to better treat our patients through the device’s accurate diagnostic capabilities, because our patients deserve the best dental care possible.

How It Works
The DIAGNOdent Pen is the latest innovation in dental technology that allows for added precision in the detection of cavities. The DIAGNOdent uses a laser light to create fluorescence on the tooth structure, higher levels of which indicate that the patient is suffering from dental caries. High levels of fluorescence produce elevated scale readings, which point to cavities and decay in the tooth.
Low scale readings, on the other hand, show that there was little fluorescence produced by the DIAGNOdent’s laser light, meaning the structure of the tooth is healthy and clean!
