DIAGNOdent Laser Cavity Screening from your Delta Dentist
DIAGNOdent is an advanced method used by our dental professionals to find even the tiniest dental decay and cavities. Using the sophisticated DIAGNOdent technology, we are able to deal with small tooth cavities and areas of dental caries prior to them turning into larger concerns needing several procedures. DIAGNOdent is a quick, comfortable screening that helps you and your Surrey dentist keep your smile healthy and happy for a life time.
DIAGNOdent makes use of a precise laser scanning system to scan all of your teeth while sending out an audio signal and registering a digital read-out. By determining the fluorescence within each tooth’s structure, your dental practitioner can determine where there might be tooth cavities growing in the little spaces between, on, and around your teeth.
DIAGNOdent is comfortable and takes just a couple of short minutes to scan your whole mouth for tooth cavities and decay. Spotting dental cavities as early as possible helps eliminate the number of expensive treatments that you may require down the line and assists in dealing with little issues before they end up being severe dental cases.
Not all tooth cavities are obvious without the assistance of the sophisticated DIAGNOdent laser screening. The majority of tooth decay begins in the tiny fractures and grooves of your tooth’s surface. By the time the tooth cavities are seen by the human eye, it’s often due to the fact that there is a much bigger issue, and the cavity itself was never seen or felt by the patient.
With the use of fluoride, many of these cavities never ever make it to the tooth’s surface, and instead start eating away at the tooth from the inside out. The DIAGNOdent laser helps in finding these small locations of decay.
