Diagnodent laser detection can catch problems before they begin!
Sharp explorer may not detect cavity. Diagnodent laser finds hidden cavity.
Diagnodent™ is a revolutionary new dental laser tool that safely and effectively detects changes on your tooth’s surface that might not be visible on a traditional x-ray. When this light source is directed at your tooth, anything unusual about the tooth’s surface – such as the start of a cavity – causes a different type of light to be bounced back to the instrument. This light is transferred into an audible sound. This lets us know what type of treatment you might need; whether a preventive sealant or a beautiful, state-of-the-art esthetic filling. We want to ensure that every tooth remains yours for life, and that your visit to our office is comfortable and pleasant. Diagnodent is a unique development that not only may reduce your need for x-rays; it will catch problems before they even get started. Our investment in this system is great news for all our patients who want to preserve their teeth for a lifetime, because an examination using Diagnodent technology today could save you from complex restorative treatments tomorrow.
Is it a cavity, or just stains? Now with Diagnodent we can tell immediately!
