Diagnodent - Advanced Dental Diagnostics

What is Diagnodent?

Diagnodent    Diagnodent is a non-invasive, painless tool used for detecting tooth decay that is not yet visible and would otherwise be undiagnosed by conventional methods alone. 

 Leaders in the field of dental research agree that, when used by themselves, the traditional methods of detecting tooth decay are inadequate and outdated for modern dentistry. 

 With the flouridation of water and improved oral hygiene standards, the very nature of tooth decay has changed.  Due to these factors, most of our patients have harder and more resistant tooth enamel, which can conceal even aggressive decay if it is under the tooth surface.

How Does it Work?

 Diagnodent works by scanning your teeth to measure fluorescence within your tooth structure.  Healthy teeth will have little or no fluorescence. 

 Teeth that have decay present will have higher levels of fluorescence, which are proportionate to how extensive the decay is.  Diagnodent translates these fluorescence readings into a digital numeric output.

   Also, these changes in fluorescence and numeric value are emitted as an audio signal which signals the presence of decay as it goes up in tone.

How Can Diagnodent Benefit Me?

 Because you can't treat what you can't see, Diagnodent enables dentists to more quickly diagnose decay and prevent extensive damage to your teeth.  Diagnosing decay in an expeditious manner also saves you, the patient, both time and money by helping you to avoid the costly and time-consuming dental treatments that pervasive decay requires.  Diagnodent provides us a significant diagnostic advantage and helps us to monitor and protect your teeth where they are most vulnerable.
