Laser Cavity Detector

With the common widespread use of fluoride, which fortifies the outer surface (the enamel) of a tooth, decay is capable of progressing under seemingly intact tooth structure. If left undiscovered and untreated this decay will keep growing and destroying healthy tooth until it reaches the tooth’s outer surface.

The Diagnodent laser provides Dr. Allen with an additional tool to find such hidden decay, enabling her to treat it before it gets larger and becomes evident on the outside of the tooth. Stopping decay early preserves the maximum amount of tooth structure, decreasing the likelihood for costly root canal treatments, extractions and crowns. (The laser is physically harmless and safe to the patient.)
