The Diagnodent is a diagnostic dental laser that aids in making treatment decisions with confidence. Unlike traditional diagnostic methods, Diagnodent is an extremely accurate and reliable adjunct for the detection of sub-surface caries. It removes the guesswork that accompanies many treatment decisions regarding questionable areas, such as stained or discolored grooves. It can detect caries before they are visible on X-rays, thus conserving valuable tooth structure by minimizing the size of restorations.
Lasers became available in the early 1990's for dentistry. Dr Kata was one of the early pioneers. He lectured on Laser dentistry, and has been a member of several laser associations and societies.
Dr Kata adopted Air abrasion in the mid 90's. It is a very gentle and relatively pain free method for the preparation of small cavites. Often the need for local anesthesia is eliminated. It is used for the surface preparation of sealants, cosmetic fillings, veneers, and more.
