Laser Cavity Detector (Diagnodent)
Locating hidden decay before it destroys tooth structure (from the inside out) is a major goal. Finding cavities beneath the hard surfaces is challenging because the disease process can start through microscopic defects in the hard surface and can spread into the softer tooth structure beneath the surface. Diagnodent is a major breakthrough that allows us to monitor the areas below the hard surfaces. We can now locate hidden decay, and with treatment, stop the spread of the disease before it destroys the tooth from within.
This amazing laser cavity finder, instantly and accurately, finds cavities in areas that dental picks miss 76% of the time, and x-rays rarely see.
Digital radiography (x-rays) is the latest way to take and evaluate x-rays. With digital x-rays, less radiation is needed to produce high-quality images. These images can then be evaluated on a large flat-screen monitor. This allows for easier detection of any problems. With such a large image, it is also easier for patients to see and understand what is happening with their teeth.
The VELscope is non-invasive and uses a bright blue light to emphasize any changes in the mouth that a dentist or hygienist could not normally see. Your dentist and hygienist usually screen you for any signs of oral cancer at your regular checkups, but some symptoms of oral cancer can be invisible to the naked eye.
