Laser Detection of Cavities (DIAGNOdent)
Lasers have many uses in dentistry. One use is to facilitate early detection of dental decay in difficult-to-diagnose areas. Early detection allows for more conservative restorations, more confidence when "watching" a suspicious tooth, and often less or no anesthetic injection for treatment. Quick, painless, and objective, we feel the proper use of this technology makes diagnosis more consistent, evaluation more thorough, and the overall patient experience better.
