The Diagnodent is another of Allen Valley's cutting edge tools that we use to help detect dental caries at the earliest possible stage. This tool gives a clinical measurement, helping make the decision between a "watch" and a "treat".
Diagnodent is a fluorescent laser that finds cavities which lie beneath the surface of the tooth. There are often cavities that x-rays and the explorer do not find. This advanced technology helps to preserve a greater amount of your tooth structure by uncovering dental decay before it progresses too far.
By using this technology and restoring the teeth with bonded composite restorations we are preserving as much of your natural tooth as possible!
