Why is laser dentistry important for detecting cavities?
Detecting cavities early can save you from future pain and expenses when it comes to the health of your teeth. That is why stopping the decay of your teeth early will make all the difference for your teeth.
Early Cavity Detection
Royal Lakes Family Dental utilizes the Diagnodent for detecting cavities in their early stages. Diagnodent is laser technology that reads the density of the tooth to identify decay prior to an x-ray being able to detect it. This allows for more conservative restorations, less pain and less out-of-pocket expenses for the patient. This also alleviates the risk for decay growing too deep within the tooth requiring deeper fillings or root canals and crowns.
