DIAGNOdent is a new minimally invasive diagnostic tool for Karla and Dr. Turner to find and evaluate the extent of even the smallest areas of tooth decay and cavities. By using the advanced DIAGNOdent technology, we are able to detect small cavities and areas of tooth decay before they become larger issues requiring multiple or expensive procedures. DIAGNOdent is a quick way to help Dr Turner determine if a discoloration of the grooves of your teeth is insignificant or if it is in need for further treatment. We use DIAGNODent technology to help you keep your smile healthy and happy for a lifetime.
How does DIAGNOdent work?
DIAGNOdent uses a laser to scan the grooves of your teeth while sending out a signal and registering a digital read-out. By measuring the fluorescence within each tooth's structure, we can identify where there are bacteria and may be cavities developing in the small spaces between, on, and around your teeth. We use DIAGNOdent to assist us in providing you with a thorough and detailed exam.
DIAGNOdent is comfortable and takes only a few seconds to scan each tooth in your mouth for cavities and decay. Detecting tooth decay as early as possible helps eliminate the number of costly treatments that you may need in the future and helps treat small problems before they become serious dental problems.
