Dental Excellence Integrative Center utilizes DIAGNOdent® laser for caries (cavity) detection. DIAGNOdentis® a state-of-the-art laser technology that allows for precise diagnosis. It allows us to monitor the areas below the hard surfaces, which gives us insight to hidden decay below the surface. Decay is a silent progressive infection which undermines the dentin and pulp which can eventually become unsightly, cause pain and result in an unpleasant root canal therapy. Early detection of caries encourages a healthy recovery outcome. Regular preventative measures, routine check-ups and early detection promotes a positive and prompt restorative treatment plan resulting in quicker recovery.
This new technology is completely safe and pain-free. This unique instrument provides instant feedback on the health of the tooth. A pen-like probe simply glides over tooth surface constantly checking the health of the tooth. A number scale and an alarm signal the operator when there are signs of hidden decay.
We encourage regular dental check-ups, cleanings and home care. Early caries detection and diagnosis of problems minimize the expenses related to major tooth repair. New technologies take Dental Excellence Integrative Center Providers a giant step forward to help you achieve the goal of minimally invasive dentistry.
