Here at Santa Clara Dental, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the latest technological advances. We work diligently, advocating for early detection of cavities and gum disease.
We are proud to say that we use the Diagnodent® cavity-detection device. This device is a high-tech fluorescent laser that aids in detecting caries (cavities) in their early stages. The Diagnodent® laser works by measuring changes in tooth structure, internal and external, and is ninety percent accurate in detecting early cavities.
The Diagnodent® laser is unique and no other product performs better. You receive exact results for every tooth scanned, and it is proven to be more accurate than just visual or X-ray detection.
This procedure is pain free and preserves the teeth. The Diagnodent® device is easy to use and can detect even the smallest of lesions, which is especially useful for the deep pit and fissure areas of the tooth. There is no probing or scraping. The laser gives us a simple scan that signals the dentist with a gentle, audible alert.
By using the Diagnodent® laser, we can rest assured there is no hidden decay and head off any future potential problems, saving our patients’ tooth structures and improving their oral health.
If you have any questions about cavity detection or the Diagnodent® laser, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (435) 688-1577.
