DIAGNOdent by KaVoDIAGNOdent uses a small laser to accurately locate decay, as well as areas prone to decay. Studies show that DIAGNOdent is more accurate than X-rays, and it emits no radiation because it is not taking an image, but rather scanning the teeth. The process is completely comfortable and requires no anesthesia.
Conservative dentistry is always the best option for patients. When we find decay early, teeth incur less damage and more natural tooth structure can be retained during restoration. DIAGNOdent can also find areas prone to future decay. Demineralization in teeth makes them susceptible to decay. By re-mineralizing with fluoride, patients may deter cavity formation. Our team believes prevention is best for the patient because it will reduce your need for future reconstructive dental procedures. Modern advances in dentistry, like DIAGNOdent, allow us to give you the most conservative and precise treatment available, and you deserve it. Now that’s something to smile about!
