Laser Reflection Finds Imperfection—Aids in Correction
Providing the absolute best service to our patients is one of our goals.
We have therefore acquired a brand new, high tech tool that allows us
to find cavities on the chewing surfaces of back teeth, even when they
just beginning, and would have been missed by previous detection methods.
The DIAGNOdent is a small, portable laser unit that can detect these
cavities and alert us with an audible signal and also provide a numerical
readout, so we have an idea of it's size. The value is that we can stop
cavities in their infancy, whereas in the past they would have to be
significantly bigger before we could find and treat them. Just like other
areas of medicine and dentistry, early detection and treatment is of
immeasurable value in preserving your health.
