Toluca Lake Dentist Talks About How DIAGNOdent Helps Patients

Written by Dr. McKay on Aug 4, 2014

Our Toluca Lake dentist office is always incorporating the latest dental technologies into our practice, in order to benefit our patients. DIAGNOdent technology is revolutionary when it comes to helping patients identify and treat dental problems. Let’s talk more about how DIAGNOdent can contribute to a healthy, long-lasting smile.

No matter how well you care for your teeth every day, it is still possible for you to develop dental infections or injuries. In order to minimize the chance that these dental issues will destroy your smile, it is important that you identify and treat dental conditions as soon as they pop up.

The DIAGNOdent dental tool will help you achieve this goal. DIAGNOdent is a preventative dentistry tool that scans a patient’s teeth for signs of dental decay. When you come in for your dental appointment, our dentist will use DIAGNOdent to scan each one of your teeth.

The DIAGNOdent laser will read the different levels of fluorescence reflected in your teeth. When a tooth has high levels of fluorescence, it is likely harboring a dental infection.

The good news is that DIAGNOdent identifies dental decay in its earliest stages—months, or even years, before it becomes visible at the surface of the tooth. Consequently, our dental team can treat your dental infections before they become severe and compromise the rest of your smile. DIAGNOdent facilitates fast, effective, and timely treatment.

Our Toluca Lake dentist office offers many different types of preventative dentistry treatments for patients of all ages. To learn more about what kind of dental options can help you preserve your smile, including DIAGNOdent treatment, please feel free to give our dental office a call.
