What is DIAGNOdent?
DIAGNOdent is a revolutionary new way for your dentist to find even the most minor areas of tooth decay and cavities. By using the advanced DIAGNOdent technology, we can detect small cavities and areas of tooth decay before they become more significant issues requiring multiple procedures. DIAGNOdent is a quick, comfortable process that helps you and your doctor keep your smile healthy and happy for a lifetime.
How does DIAGNOdent work?
DIAGNOdent uses a precise laser scanning system to scan all your teeth while using laser technology to register a digital read-out. By measuring the fluorescence within each tooth’s structure, your dentist can identify where there may be cavities developing in the small spaces between, on, and around your teeth.
DIAGNOdent is comfortable and takes only a few short minutes to scan your entire mouth for cavities and decay. Detecting tooth decay as early as possible helps eliminate the number of costly treatments you may need down the line and helps treat minor problems before they become severe dental cases.
What Are the Benefits of DIAGNOdent?
There are many benefits to using DIAGNOdent for your dental needs. With DIAGNOdent, there is less of a chance of missed cavities. Not all cavities are noticeable without the help of the advanced DIAGNOdent laser screening. Most tooth decay begins in the tiny cracks and grooves of your tooth’s surface. By the time you notice cavities, there is a much larger problem, and the cavity itself was never seen or felt by the patient. And with the widespread use of fluoride, many of these cavities never make it to the tooth’s surface. Instead, they begin eating away at the tooth from the inside out. The DIAGNOdent laser helps locate these small areas of decay. Plus, DIAGNOdent can eliminate the need for x-rays.
How Much Does DIAGNOdent Treatment Cost?
The cost of your DIAGNOdent treatment will depend on the severity of your cavities and decay. In many cases, dental insurance will cover a portion of the cost. We offer financing options to ensure everyone can access the best possible dental care. Schedule a free consultation today to learn more about the cost of your treatment.
What to Expect During a Diagnodent Appointment
The procedure is simple: Dr. Prince and a team member will first clean your teeth and then dry them off. Next, they will place the DIAGNOdent pen on your tooth and activate it. The pen will emit a harmless laser light that will bounce off your tooth and into the sensor. The sensor will then measure the amount of reflected light and generate a score indicating the cavity’s presence or absence.
If no cavity is present, Dr. Prince will clean your teeth, and you’ll be on your way. However, if a cavity is detected, he may recommend further treatment, such as a filling or crown. Either way, you can rest assured that DIAGNOdent provides an accurate and reliable way to detect cavities at their earliest stage.
