Cavity Detection with DIAGNOdent

Posted by on Jun 20, 2012 in Blogs | 0 comments

Detecting tooth decay at an early stage has never been easier! At Wellesley Dental Group, we are focused on prevention, which is why we utilize DIAGNOdent technology.

This revolutionary tool uses a small, portable laser to detect tooth decay. It is much more accurate than x-rays alone and can prevent lengthy restorative work in the future. Many cavities can go undetected due to the complex structure and varied surfaces of teeth.

The laser reflects light wavelengths between healthy tooth structure and those in the beginning stages of decay. As the laser mirrors light at a targeted wavelength, it converts this data to a signal. The signal displays a value of 1-100 on the screen. Dr. Ali can then diagnose any potential problems and advise treatment before it worsens.
