STAIN or CAVITY?
The early diagnosis of decay has historically been subjective and interpretive.
Visually, cavities on the biting surface of teeth are found by the dentist during clinical examination. Stains and Cavities often have a similar clinical appearance. The diagnodent 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 so that the most appropriate treatment can be presented to you. 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.Accurate and early diagnosis means minimally invasive treatment!
