DIAGNOdent Laser Assisted Cavity Detection

Today, dentists use digital x-rays to diagnose and treat cavities in the earliest possible stages, but at Byars Dental, we take it a step further by using the DIAGNOdent laser to stop cavities before they start. The process is completely painless, so we don’t need to use numbing agents. DIAGNOdent is a dental laser that measures the density of each tooth. The DIAGNOdent laser scans teeth, and we use the density of the tooth enamel as measured by this laser to determine which teeth have weakened and may be susceptible to decay. We can then help patients, by providing fluoride treatments, professional toothpastes and mouth rinses that remineralize enamel, and demonstrating proper at-home care techniques. At each six month checkup, we check the teeth that showed signs of potential decay to make sure the current treatment plan is effective in reversing the enamel weakness. Contact us today to schedule a checkup.
