The detection of cavities (tooth decay) can be an inexact and often subjective science. To accurately detect cavities in the earliest stages, the dentists at Future of Dentistry use the DIAGNOdent Laser Cavity Detection – an amazing breakthrough in cavity detection.
Recently FDA-approved and with more than 90 percent accuracy, the DIAGNOdent fluorescent laser technology enables our dentists to instantly and accurately find decay, often without the need for added X-rays.
Laser-assisted cavity detection is a crucial aid for a more thorough oral exam for you and your family. With this advanced technology, we can locate cavities and decay underneath the tooth’s surface.
The modern laser technology penetrates approximately 2 millimeters inside the tooth’s surface, where decay initially breeds. Some X-rays cannot even discover cavities or decay at their early stages with this much precision!
We are happy to say that DIAGNOdent technology presents many benefits for our patients:
- Perhaps the most attractive feature for patients is that DIAGNOdent does not require jabbing a pick into the tooth.
- Detecting decay in its early phases, we can more accurately assess and plan the treatment needed to clean the decay and preserve a greater amount of your tooth.
- Early cavities can be found, cleaned, and sealed before requiring fillings.
- We recommend scheduling an appointment so we can accurately assess your oral health using DIAGNOdent technology! Laser cavity detection is key for early detection.
