Providing the absolute best service to our patients is of the highest importance to our team at Gulf Coast Dental. To aid in achieving this goal, we use a new high-tech device called the DIAGNOdent. This small tool is a portable laser that allows us to detect cavities on the chewing surface of the back teeth that would have otherwise gone undetected by previous methods. Diagnosing cavities in the back of the mouth using traditional methods is difficult; studies even show that 50% of cavities are left undetected in these areas. However, the new DIAGNOdent enables us to locate and treat these cavities, putting a stop to further decay. The laser is easy to use, harmless, and will alert us with an audible signal if it detects a cavity. It will even calculate the approximate size of the cavity so we can better plan treatment. By using this device, you can rest assured that cavities will be accurately detected and treated in their infancy.
What is DIAGNOdent?
Diagnodent is a highly precise dental technology used for detecting cavities in your teeth. While a lesion on your tooth can be detected if it is on the surface, it is much more likely to go unnoticed without treatment from Diagnodent. Diagnodent is a small tool allowing your dentist to detect cavities over your tooth’s chewing surfaces and on the backs of your teeth.
