Laser Cavity Detection

Diagnodent – Laser Cavity Detection

Our office uses the latest equipment for detecting even the smallest amount of decay. Because of fluoride the enamel of our teeth is stronger and sometimes hides the fact that there is decay underneath. Through microcracks, bacteria and food start the decay process undetectable to clinical examination and x-rays, until it gets much larger. With this new device we can detect a small amount of decay and place a smaller filling, conserving vital tooth structure.

We no longer have to see if a sharp explorer will “stick” in a cavity. This potentially uncomfortable procedure has been replaced by shining a special laser on the tooth to read the conditions of the underlying tooth structure.
