What Is DIAGNOdent?
Diagnosing tooth decay beneath the surface of teeth can be tricky, especially when cavities are located in the grooves and pits of the enamel. Digital x-rays and clinical evaluations do not always reveal sub-surface decay, especially in its early stages. To help diagnose tooth decay as early as possible, the dentists at Creating Beautiful Smiles use the DIAGNOdent cavity detector to examine the tooth structure. This cutting-edge device employs laser fluorescence to find areas of decay that may be developing beneath the surface layer of a tooth. By doing so, our team can often treat cavities before they become more severe. For more information on how you may benefit from a cavity screening with DIAGNOdent technology, contact our Racine, WI practice, and talk with our friendly team today.
The Cavity Screening Process
When tooth decay is identified in the very early stages, our team can often take a more conservative approach to care, treating small cavities with simple fillings or less invasive options before they expand and require greater treatment needs. During your dental check-up visits, the pen-shaped DIAGNOdent device passes over your teeth as it searches for decay. The laser emitted from the pen measures the fluorescence within the tooth structure as it is guided over each area of the mouth. If the DIAGNOdent detects fluorescence within an area, it will signal a number scale to our team. Higher numbers commonly indicate the presence of decay within a tooth.
