Every patient examination will reveal that patient’s needs. The early diagnosis of decay is very important. The Diagnodent helps detect cavities at an early level.
Visually, cavities on the biting surface of teeth are found by the dentist during clinical examination. Stains and Caries often have a similar clinical appearance.
This laser helps determine the depth and the degree of defect in the fissured surface.
The Diagnodent is a small hand-held laser that helps detect dental caries at the earliest possible stage. There are often cavities that x-rays and the explorer do not find.
This advanced technology helps to preserve a greater amount of your tooth structure by uncovering dental decay early.

The Diagnodent can catch early cavities on the biting surface of teeth. Dental X-rays help to find cavities between teeth.
These images are usually necessary at their first evaluation, and every 6 month interval. Dental X-rays are an important tool in the evaluation of cavities, as well as generalized growth and development.
Caries in children can start very early and spread extremely quickly. Since the enamel layer on children’s teeth is much thinner than on adult teeth, small cavities become root canal problems very quickly.
There is a much greater danger to your child’s teeth by NOT taking routine X-rays if a diagnosis is missed due to lack of information.
