Diagnodent Detects Tooth Decay Before It’s Visible

Visual examinations and X-rays are essential tools for detecting tooth decay, but they may not always identify decay that is hidden beneath the surface of the tooth. That's where the Diagnodent Pen comes in. Dr. Clothier utilizes this advanced diagnostic tool during your appointment to enhance the detection of decay inside the tooth.

Diagnodent Uses Laser Scanning to Protect You From Tooth Decay

The Diagnodent is a small and portable device that employs a safe laser scanning system to measure fluorescence within the structure of each tooth. This innovative technology relies on the principle that healthy teeth exhibit minimal or no fluorescence, while teeth affected by decay emit higher levels of fluorescence.

During the examination, the Diagnodent emits a harmless laser light into the tooth, which interacts with the tooth structure and reflects back to the device. By analyzing the fluorescence levels, the Diagnodent can detect areas of decay that may not be visible to the naked eye or appear on traditional X-rays.

One of the key advantages of Diagnodent is its ability to identify potential areas of concern before they become visibly apparent. This early detection allows for timely intervention and treatment to prevent further progression of decay and preserve the health of the tooth.

Furthermore, Diagnodent technology is noninvasive and painless, making it a comfortable and efficient tool for dental examinations. Patients can undergo Diagnodent scanning with minimal discomfort, while dentists can obtain valuable diagnostic information to guide treatment decisions.

Overall, Diagnodent represents a highly advanced dental technology that enhances the detection of tooth decay in its earliest stages, ultimately leading to improved patient outcomes and long-term oral health.

Stopping Your Tooth Decay in Its Tracks at Smile Solutions

At Smile Solutions, we're thrilled to offer the Diagnodent technology in our office to enhance the level of care we provide to our patients. We understand that tooth decay can sometimes be difficult to detect, especially in its earliest stages when it may not be visible to the naked eye. That's why we rely on advanced tools like Diagnodent to catch decay before it leads to further damage.

Even if a cavity isn't visible on the surface of your tooth or is causing discomfort, it can still be present and is progressing. Diagnodent allows us to identify decay in its earliest stages, even when it's hidden beneath the tooth's surface. By detecting decay early, we can intervene promptly to remove the decayed portion of the tooth and prevent further damage or complications.

The use of Diagnodent technology in our practice underscores our commitment to providing our patients with the highest quality of care and ensuring the long-term health and integrity of their smiles.
