DIAGNOdent Pen – Laser Cavity Detection

DIAGNOdent Pen – Laser Cavity Detection

The  Cavity Detection laser allows much earlier detection of tooth decay than previously available. This allows tooth preservation through preventive dentistry.The detection system uses a laser to detect the invisible fluorescence in your enamel. This in-turn will help Dr. Hom determine whether to monitor suspect areas over time, treat them with preventive dentistry, or restore them. The system allows much earlier detection of decay than previously possible.

In the past we’ve used magnification, x-rays, and cavity detecting solutions to diagnose tooth decay, but studies on extracted teeth show that early decay can still missed. This system allows us to detect decay much earlier than we could with any previous method, before it gets larger or painful.
