Laser Cavity Detection

Diagnodent.  Early detection of decay.

The Diagnodent is a fluorescent laser that detects cavities which lie beneath the surface of the tooth. There are often cavities that x-rays and the dentist’s explorer can’t find. This advanced technology helps Dr. Abeles to preserve a greater amount of your tooth structure by uncovering dental decay before it progresses too far. It’s extremely accurate, reliable and non-invasive

The Diagnodent sends a safe, painless laser beam into the tooth to check its health. A number scale and an alarm will signal when there are signs of hidden decay. This allows Dr. Abeles to determine if decay is lurking beneath an apparently healthy tooth surface. By detecting cavities at the earliest possible stage, the most conservative treatment can be provided and prevent more extensive, costly procedures down the road.
