DIAGNOdent is an exciting new technology that Dr. Jon C. Bauman uses to find every area of tooth decay, no matter how small. With the help of DIAGNOdent, he can identify and treat small cases of tooth decay before they turn into much larger problems.
DIAGNOdent is a pain-free technology that can find twice the amount of tooth decay than traditional diagnostic techniques can discover. DIAGNOdent can also help probe the cavity areas that are difficult to see with dental X-rays. This is not to say that DIAGNOdent should replace X-rays, but that the best results are achieved with a combination of digital X-ray and DIAGNOdent. DIAGNOdent works by scanning your teeth with a laser beam that provides a digital reading that measures the amount of fluorescence that indicates developing cavities. The DIAGNOdent laser is perfectly safe and harmless, which makes it an ideal technology to use in the detection of tooth decay.
