Diagnodent Laser Cavity Detection
The high-tech laser device known as DIAGNOodent laser cavity detection, is revolutionizing the way our dentist can provide diagnosis, treatments, and smile transformations. Tooth decay lesions can normally be found on the surface of a tooth, but many of these are left undetected using traditional methods and instruments. To ensure our patients, are getting the best dental care, we use DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection in Moorpark, California. Please call Moorpark Smiles Dental at 805-553-1980 and we will gladly arrange your visit with Dr. Paul Takemoto soon.
DIAGNOdent is a laser cavity detection system that helps our dentist detect cavities at the earliest possible stage. This painless system uses a handpiece that our team members simply pass over your teeth. The DIAGNOdent then gives a numeric rating to indicate the health level of the tooth. If a tooth is decayed, the system will alert our team. We are then able to formulate a treatment plan to improve the health of that tooth.
Because the DIAGNOdent can detect tooth decay before it is visible to the naked eye, we are able to treat decay before it becomes more extensive and causes more damage. In fact, DIAGNOdent can even detect tooth decay that still lies beneath the tooth surface and may not be detectable with digital X-rays. When the decay is treated early, we are able to provide a more conservative restoration that causes less discomfort, is less expensive, and preserves more of your natural tooth structure.
The DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection system has been shown to be 90% accurate – one of the most accurate cavity-detection systems now available. For more information about DIAGNOdent and the other types of diagnostic technology we use at our office, we invite you to call or visit us today.
