DIAGNOdent laser caries detection

Maintain your beautiful smile with the reliability and accuracy of DIAGNOdent laser technology. DIAGNOdent aids in the early detection of caries. Even very small lesions and tiny cavities can be detected, allowing your dentist to get ahead of tooth decay and preserve tooth substance. Proven to be over 90% accurate in caries detection, learn the amazing benefits this technology offers you.


Prevent Advanced Tooth Decay with DIAGNOdent

Dr. Nam believes the best dental care is preventive dental care. By incorporating DIAGNOdent technology in her office, she has a tool that enables her to detect tiny caries (cavities) right when they form to protect and preserve the enamel and structure of your teeth. The DIAGNOdent offers high-level accuracy and reliability with a non-invasive method for caries detection. The device has been successfully tested by more than 20,000 dental professionals in the United States and has been integrated into the curriculum by a growing number of dental schools.


Why is DIAGNOdent Technology Necessary?

Due to fluoridation, dental caries, which historically were detected on the tooth’s surface, now are often found below the surface of the tooth.  Fluoridation results in a harder tooth enamel–which has helped improve the oral health of millions of Americans, but it also has impacted previous dental caries models and treatment methods. DIAGNOdent allows Dr. Nam to see below the surface of your tooth and stop dental caries before they can destroy the substance of your tooth. The DIAGNOdent tool gives Dr. Nam views into occlusal pits and fissures so she can treat sub-surface caries lesions with accuracy and effectiveness.


Benefits of DIAGNOdent Technology

The DIAGNOdent tool provides dentists and patients with various benefits that are worth highlighting. DIAGNOdent laser caries detection:

  • Saves dentists and patients time by allowing the use of minimally invasive treatments without unnecessary preparation
  • Offers a tracking method for caries activity over time with a precise and reliable measurements.
  • Incorporates easy-to-use technology allows hygienists to detect suspicious areas needing further examination.
  • Prevents unnecessary exploratory excavation treatments of suspicious teeth.
  • Promotes accuracy. Proven to be over 90% accurate.
  • Gives early detection of pathological changes typically undiagnosed by conventional examination methods (e.g. initial lesions, demineralization and changes in the enamel, fissure caries).
  • Allows for a painless examination/treatment. There are no scratching probes involved.  Simple, fast and painless examination.
  • Increases dentist and patient confidence about treatment decisions due to accurate visual representations of caries.
  • Supports a healthier experience since there is no x-ray exposure.
