One of the most important things we do for our patients is identify and fill cavities. Since any spot of decay can threaten the integrity of an entire tooth, detection is key to preventing a host of potential problems. Lengthy poking and probing sessions have been an acceptable, if not very comfortable, part of dental exams for years. However, such methods are only 50 to 75 percent successful. Cavities can hide in many places. To make the process more comfortable and comprehensive, we use DIAGNOdent, a revolutionary dental laser that can detect cavities in the earliest stages.
