The Diagnodent is a computerized flourescent laser device that helps detect dental decay at the earliest possible stage so that the most appropriate treatment can be presented to you.
By using the diagnodent we are able to find cavities which lie beneath the surface of the tooth. There are often cavities that cannot be seen using x-rays. This advanced technology helps to preserve a greater amount of your tooth structure by uncovering dental decay before it progresses too far.
We find this device to be especially usefull for detecting decay in the mouths of our youngest patients. After all, you cannot treat what can't be seen.
