DIAGNOdent Cavity Detection Available in Santa Barbara
The DIAGNOdent is a dental technology tool that offers cutting edge cavity detection. Using a laser, the device can give your Santa Barbara dentist a reading that helps with early cavity detection. As you can guess, early detection offers the best possible outcome for you, the patient. When cavities are detected early, there’s an opportunity to remove decay before it becomes widespread. This also means less of your tooth needs to be removed.
Dr. Mark T. Weiser is a firm believer in preventative dentistry and he invests in dental technology for his Santa Barbara dental practice that helps provide patients with exceptional care. From early cavity detection with DIAGNOdent to digital imaging, ozone therapy, and laser dentistry he has a multitude of non-invasive ways to ensure your smile and oral health are both in top condition.
DIAGNOdent Uses and Benefits
DIAGNOdent is easy and painless. It lets your dentist diagnose cavities without x-rays. It also means your dentist doesn’t have to poke and scrape at your teeth in an effort to find dental caries. Dr. Weiser simply uses the probe in your mouth to get a reading that will let him know whether or not you have cavities. The tool measures fluorescence in the teeth, which can indicate tooth decay, even a very small cavity. It also saves your dentist and you time in the dental chair because it works quickly and efficiently.
In addition to detection of dental caries, DIAGNOdent also helps with periodontal disease detection, too. We offer several non-invasive periodontal detection methods, including DIAGNOdent’s perio probe and OralDNA, consisting of an oral rinse and saliva test.
