It’s not often that a cavity gets past us. While they are good at hiding, our cavity-tracking tools and technology can find problems brewing even in the tiniest of spaces.
One piece of technology that gets the job done is called Diagnodent.
Extremely popular in the specialized field of laser dentistry, I use Diagnodent to find small amounts of tooth decay at the earliest stages. It’s almost like a laser cavity detector. I use a tiny laser to scan zones where tooth decay is most likely to set it. When the laser detects a suspicious area, it emits a visible light and makes a beeping noise. The more tooth decay, the more visible the light and the faster it beeps. These audio cues are especially beneficial for patients, as they let them know what’s happening inside their mouths during the process.
Immediate feedback – an advantage for both you and me!
Diagnodent is proven to be 90% accurate in detecting early-stage cavities. And early detection means smaller fillings, faster appointments, and lower costs!
