Seeing is Believing

The KaVo DIAGNOcam is a compact and mobile device for caries detection. It uses DIFOTI Technology (Digital Imaging Fiber Optic Transillumination) to illuminate the tooth. It supports the diagnosis of occlusal, interproximal and secondary caries as well as cracks.

By using infrared light, enamel appears glass-like. In contrast to healthy teeth, carious lesions absorb more light and consequently remain dark. It allows you to determine location and extent of dental caries without using x-ray.

Teeth cleaning is not required prior to using DIAGNOcam due to this technology. The images are easy to interpret and and support enhanced patient communication.

KaVo DIAGNOcam offers a new spectrum of diagnostics and treatment:

  • Detection of the full range of caries - from initial to dentine caries - for individual treatments

  • Real-time images: Images and videos that will excite you and your patients live on screen without delay

  • No radiation: Diagnosis of radiophobes, cancer patients, children, pregnant women and non-mobile patients
