Keep reading to learn more about what DIAGNOdent is, and how it may help you.

Effective, high-quality preventative dental treatment can save you years of hassle and dental decay down the road. DIAGNOdent is a revolutionary dental tool that makes it easier for our dental team to pinpoint, and treat, dental decay as it first emerges.

What does DIAGNOdent do?

DIAGNOdent is a dental laser that scans a patient’s teeth for signs of dental decay. This dental tool registers how much fluorescence each tooth has as the laser passes over it. Teeth with high levels of fluorescence have existing dental decay.

The DIAGNOdent laser is able to recognize dental decay that would otherwise go undiagnosed for months or years. Dental decay that is hidden from view, and invisible to the naked eye, is brought into view with DIAGNOdent.

This technology is hugely beneficial for patients. When our dental team is able to locate dental decay as it is just emerging, we can begin treatment before dental cavities become entrenched in the tooth. DIAGNOdental allows us to restore our patients’ teeth using less invasive treatments.

You can benefit from this state-of-the-art preventative dentistry tool when you come to see our Toluca Lake dentist. If you would like more information about DIAGNOdent, please feel free to contact our dental team by phone or through our website. We are here to give you the support you need to discover your healthiest possible smile.
