Diagnosis of caries at a new modern level.
KaVo DIAGNOcam is a compact caries diagnosis tool. It uses the innovative technology of digital fiber optic transillumination (DIFOTI).
When using infrared light, tooth enamel transmits radiation like glass, and carious tissues absorb more light and become darker. DIAGNOcam allows you to determine the location and depth of the carious defect without the use of x-rays.
Images captured with DIAGNOcam are easy to interpret. They also improve communication with the patient by visualizing the image on the monitor.
Much becomes apparent.
KaVo DIAGNOcam opens up new possibilities in the diagnosis of caries:
- Detection of caries in full: from initial forms to extensive carious lesions;
- Real-time images: demonstration of the received images and video on the screen;
- The absence of x-ray radiation allows diagnosing patients with radiophobia, patients with cancer, children, pregnant women and sedentary patients.
How does DIAGNOcam work?
The image on DIAGNOcam is obtained thanks to the DIFOTI technology (digital fiber optic transillumination). The device generates laser radiation in the non-x-ray wavelength range. At the same time, the beam passes freely through the healthy part of the tooth, without obstacles, and impermeable areas, such as caries, are easily detected and represent dark areas on the general background. The built-in video camera transmits the image on the screen in real time. Thus, due to the absence of radiation, this procedure (caries diagnosis) can be repeated as often as necessary. It is very convenient, especially for children, pregnant women, postoperative clients and patients with contraindications to x-ray methods.
Radiation-free x-ray accuracy
DIAGNOcam has two light sources that shine through the tooth, due to which carious lesions appear in the form of areas darkened against the general background. This procedure is safe compared to x-ray examination. Accordingly, the installation of inconvenient x-ray sensors or film holders is not required.
Pictures are displayed on the screen in real time. This device allows you to keep a patient’s medical history and compare the state of tooth tissue after some time.
