Using the latest technology, we can help you and your family achieve optimal oral health. DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection allows us to detect and diagnose areas of decay that cannot be seen by the naked eye or traditional dental tools alone. With DIAGNOdent technology, we can detect even the most miniscule areas of decay and then treat them before they become major oral health issues.
Because of the advent of fluoride, most minor cavities and tooth decay do not appear on the teeth’s surfaces. Instead, they work their way inside the tooth and begin destroying the inner tooth. By the time they do appear on the surface of the teeth, there is significant damage.
DIAGNOdent laser technology measures the fluorescence of each tooth, allowing it to detect these hidden areas of decay. With the information gleaned from a traditional examination and the DIAGNOdent examination, we can help protect your teeth against decay so you can enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles.
