Visiting the dentist on a regular basis is an essential component of maintaining optimal oral health. Not only do your teeth get a thorough cleaning, but also your entire mouth gets an exam that to detect for serious oral health issues. One of the key components to a dental exam is the detection of cavities. Cavities are permanently damaged areas of holes created in the tooth enamel. Cavities that are not treated in an optimal time frame will grow larger and larger and will infect the gums and neighboring teeth with their decay. One of the latest advancements in dental technology is the use of laser cavity detection in order to catch cavities early on in order to treat them before they become a major concern.
DIAGNOdent is a small laser that is used by dentists for an accurate detection of cavities in their earliest stages. People worldwide place a huge emphasis on achieving and maintaining a beautiful smile. Early cavity detection is a huge component in helping patients keep their mouth as healthy, complete, and beautiful as possible. The DIAGNOdent laser is a small and painless device that is placed on the surface of the teeth in order to detect any tooth decay below the tooth’s surface. Tooth enamel is the hardest substance found in the human body, and it can prevent dentists from catching issues below the enamel until they make themselves present. Early cavity detection with DIAGNOdent allows dentists to identify and treat cavities before they develop into a major oral health issue.
