It is our goal to help you maintain and improve your oral health. To achieve this goal, we guarantee that our equipment will be as state of the art as possible. Among the newest technologies is a small laser instrument called that DIAGNOdent, which scans your teeth with harmless laser light searching for hidden decay.
DIAGNOdent Pen Sees What We Can't See!
Locating hidden decay before it destroys tooth structure (from the inside out) is a major goal for modern dentistry. The widespread use of fluoride supplements in dental materials, toothpastes and drinking water has made tooth surfaces harder and more resistant to decay. However, diagnosing cavities beneath the hard surfaces is more challenging because the disease process can start through microscopic defects in the hard surface enamel and can readily spread to the softer tooth structure beneath the surface.
Fortunately, the new DIAGNOdent laser cavity detector allows your dentist to monitor the areas below the hard surfaces, locating hidden decay. The use of DIAGNOdent paired with treatment stops the spread of disease before it destroys the tooth from within.
DIAGNOdent Pen is Patient Friendly, Especially for Children
This unique instrument is a pen-like probe that simply glides over tooth surfaces and constantly checks the health of the tooth, providing your dentist with instant feedback. A number scale and an alarm signals your dentist when there are signs of hidden decay. This new technology is completely safe, pain free and great for all our patients, especially the little ones!
