At Peoria Healthy Smiles, we strive to find new technology and advanced techniques to find and detect cavities. With the DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection technology, the doctors are able to replace the old ways of the hunt and peck strategy to find cavities and replace it with the advanced technology of Laser Detection Systems. This advanced DIAGNodent technology uses a laser diode to scan the patient’s tooth. The diode then compares the reflected laser wavelength versus the wavelength of a normal healthy tooth, allowing us to quickly and efficiently inspect your entire tooth for suspected cavity areas.
What does all of this mean for you, the patient?
- This technology quickly identifies the tiniest of tooth decay.
- Early detection saves you money by preventing further tooth decay.
- More accurate and simpler fillings, so that we conserve more of your tooth structure.
- Simple monitoring of suspicious areas without multiple x-rays.
DIAGNOdent technology allows Peoria Healthy Smiles to find your cavities earlier. With this technology, you can rest assured that we will find all of your cavities quickly and comfortably.
