DIAGNOdent: Your Defense Against Hidden Tooth Decay at Sun Creek Dental
Welcome to Sun Creek Dental, where we pair warm patient care with the precision of modern technology. We’re excited to offer you DIAGNOdent — an innovative solution that exemplifies our commitment to preserving your natural, healthy smile. DIAGNOdent is a revolutionary leap forward in the detection of tooth decay, and it’s here to change the way we safeguard your oral health.
Early Detection Matters: The Power of DIAGNOdent
Tooth decay is a silent assailant, often causing significant pain and putting your teeth at considerable risk. When decay becomes severe, it can lead to the necessity for extractions or restorative treatments, which could have been avoided with timely intervention. DIAGNOdent is our latest weapon in the fight against decay, a safe fluorescent laser that detects hidden caries quickly, accurately, and in the earliest stages — ensuring your teeth have the best chance of being treated and saved.
Tooth preservation is the cornerstone of what we do. Restorations such as crowns and bridges have their place, but there’s nothing quite like your natural tooth. DIAGNOdent helps us identify decay without the invasive methods of the past, like scratching, probing, or opening up the tooth. This leads to a higher likelihood of treating and keeping your natural tooth and sidestepping costlier, more extensive restorative work.
How DIAGNOdent Benefits You
DIAGNOdent outshines other detection methods, such as X-rays and traditional examinations, boasting over 90% accuracy. In some cases, decay can go “underground” due to flouridation, hiding beneath the surface, invisible to the naked eye. DIAGNOdent’s advanced technology exposes these elusive caries earlier, expanding your treatment options. Additional benefits of DIAGNOdent include:
– Gives dentists the ability to treat with greater assurance
– Enables the exploration of suspicious areas without discomfort
– Is completely safe and non-invasive
– Provides cost-effective prevention and early intervention
– Delivers empirically measurable results
– Reduces the likelihood of future dental procedures
– Is more accurate than other diagnostic tools available
– Does not expose patients to X-rays
– Eliminates the need for uncomfortable probing
The DIAGNOdent Procedure Explained
Undergoing the DIAGNOdent procedure is simple and fits neatly within the scope of your regular dental checkup. It’s akin to having a laser pointer aimed at your teeth. DIAGNOdent calibrates by scanning a clean tooth surface with its laser beam, informing the system about the tooth’s structure for accurate detection.
As each tooth is scanned, DIAGNOdent measures the amount of laser fluorescence within the tooth. The digital readout corresponds to the health of the tooth — lower readings indicate healthy teeth, while higher readings can signify the presence of decay. This correlation helps us pinpoint precisely where intervention is needed.
When decay is detected early, the range of treatment possibilities broadens, offering a higher chance to save the affected tooth and maintain your natural smile.
