DIAGNOdent is a tool used by our doctors or hygienists to detect very small cavities in teeth at their earliest stage of development within the enamel of a tooth.
An important part of our preventive philosophy is to prevent the advancement of tooth decay and to preserve healthy tooth structure. These very small areas of decay can start in between teeth or just below the grooves on the chewing surfaces of back teeth. DIAGNOdent's mini LASER detects decay where it would otherwise be invisible to the naked eye. This results in our ability to know, with accuracy, where decay exists and to treat it before it spreads, thus conserving tooth structure.
