or tooth decay
Localized disease that causes decay and cavities in teeth. It begins at the tooth's surface and may penetrate the dentin and the pulp cavity. detection device that uses laser fluorescence fluorescence (flrĕs`əns), luminescence in which light of a visible color is emitted from a substance under stimulation or excitation by light or other forms of electromagnetic to measure changes in the tooth structure caused by caries. The DIAGNOdent delivers an audible sound when caries is detected as well as a visual numerical readout (1) A small display device that typically shows only a few digits or a couple of lines of data.
(2) Any display screen or panel. quantifying the level of caries present in the tooth. The new perio probe, available for both the DIAGNOdent Classic and pen versions, uses laser fluorescence of subgingival calculus calculus, branch of mathematics that studies continuously changing quantities. The calculus is characterized by the use of infinite processes, involving passage to a limit—the notion of tending toward, or approaching, an ultimate value. to determine quantification of calculus left behind by standard root planing and scaling. Calculus fluoresces differently than healthy tissue. The device senses the difference and sends a signal to the numerical display, and also emits an audible signal, indicating calculus has been identified. The perio probe can detect calculus concrements in periodontal periodontal /peri·odon·tal/ (per?e-o-don´t'l)
1. pertaining to the periodontal ligament or periodontium.
2. near or around a tooth.
1. pockets up to 9 mm deep. Audible detection and measurable values make more patients aware of their calculus levels, leading to increased patient compliance with the recommended treatment. For more information, call (888) 275-5286 or visit www.kavousa.com.
