DIAGNOdent® – Randolph, NJ
the Easy Way
One of the most important things we do for our patients is identify and fill cavities. Since any spot of decay can threaten the integrity of an entire tooth, detection is key to preventing a host of potential problems. Lengthy poking and probing sessions have been an acceptable, if not very uncomfortable, part of dental exams for years. However, such methods of decay detection are only 50% to 75% successful. Cavities can hide along fissure lines or inside biting and chewing surfaces. Furthermore, mechanical exploratory methods are limited to finding only those cavities that are equal to or larger than the probe head. To make the process more comfortable and comprehensive, we use DIAGNOdent – a revolutionary dental laser that is capable of locating decay in its earliest stages.
