DIAGNOdent Laser: Proven Technology For Fighting Tooth Decay
DIAGNOdent Laser - Advanced Cavity Detection
When it comes to your oral health, it’s essential to spot cavities as early as possible.
While traditional methods of visual detection, probing, and x-rays are reliable diagnostic tools, they can fail to spot some smaller cavities that can form beneath the tooth enamel. In fact, these tiny cavities, also known as caries, have a detection rate of just 50 to 75 percent when traditional diagnostic technologies are employed. Thankfully, we have an advanced instrument that helps bump that number up to approximately 90 percent.
A DIAGNOdent Laser is a tool that makes it possible for dentists to find and treat small caries before they develop into cavities. Using a light-emitting diode (LED) to illuminate and detect tiny cavities, this technology is hugely beneficial in locating cavities that tend to hide along fissure lines or inside biting surfaces.
Untreated cavities can become nasty when left untreated and can lead to abscesses and serious dental and medical issues. With the DIAGNOdent Laser, we can circumvent these issues and keep your mouth healthy and strong.
