Introducing a new tool at Dental Care of Stamford to help us detect the invisible….. and find cavities that lie beneath the surface. The Diagnodent is a laser that allows us to detect dental caries (decay) at the earliest possible stage so the most appropriate treatment can be designed for you. More accuracy — less guesswork.
Cavities have changed…With the fluoridation of water and improved oral hygiene standards the nature of caries has changed. Harder and more resistant enamel can conceal aggressive sub-surface decay.
Leaders in the field of caries research agree: conventional methods of caries diagnosis alone are inadequate and outdated for modern dentistry.
The Diagnodent is a reliable, non-invasive supplement to the contemporary dentist’s arsenal of diagnostic procedures and is highly effective in detecting caries at an early stage where teeth are most vulnerable.
Measurements from Diagnodent, together with conventional diagnostic tools and valuable professional judgment, will help determine whether to monitor suspect areas over time and treat them with preventive therapy such as fluoride and sealants, or to restore them with minimally invasive techniques.
Diagnodent is the exciting result of years of research by leading dentists and scientists at universities in Switzerland, Scotland and Germany.
