Diagnodent helps our team identify early signs of tooth decay by using laser technology.
Diagnodent is a screening tool that uses lasers to detect signs of tooth decay similar to other investigative techniques.
The sooner decay is identified, the better prepared our team will be to deal with it, and the better chance there is that the tooth will survive. This is especially beneficial if you are anxious about visits to the dentist, since having to undergo invasive dental procedures is less likely with early detection. And of course, minimized need for further treatment means minimized overall dental costs.
Diagnodent is a treatment that uses lasers to detect signs of tooth decay. By shining a light from a laser onto the teeth through an optical fibre, healthy teeth are distinguished from unhealthy ones by the level of fluorescence they display on the reading. If the device detects tooth decay, we are alerted visually as well as with an audible signal. We will then be able to deal with the decay before it becomes more advanced.
