DIAGNOdent

It is always important to detect and treat cavities as early as possible.  However, detecting cavities using only visual, probing, and x-ray clues has proven to be only 50-75% accurate.  Because cavities can hide along fissure lines or inside biting or occlusal surfaces, detecting them early can be challenging.   Additionally, probing by the dentist has also been proven ineffective, as the cavity would have to be as large as the probe head in order to be found.

DIAGNOdent is a revolutionary way to detect and find cavities.  DIAGNOdent uses a laser diode to inspect the patient’s teeth.  The light-emitting device is shined on the teeth and then gives a digital readout the dentist is able to use to detect decay.  In fact, the DIAGNOdent laser is able to identify the tiniest bit of tooth decay before it becomes a major problem.  Detecting decay early means that fillings can be shallower and simpler and more of the tooth structure can be preserved.  And, because DIAGNOdent uses only light energy, not x-rays, it’s safe to use at each office visit.
