A dental cavity can cause problems long before we can see it. At Smile Shoppe Pediatric Dentistry, we know that the earlier we can detect a dental cavity, the better. If left untreated, hidden decay can destroy the tooth structure beneath the surface of the tooth. That’s why we proudly offer dental cleanings with DIAGNOdent.
What is DIAGNOdent?
DIAGNOdent is a non-invasive laser scanner that can find the slightest hint of decay or weakened areas within your teeth. The pain-free scan takes only minutes and allows us to accurately find dental caries before they harm the tooth from the inside out.
How does it find a dental cavity?
During your regular dental cleaning, we will use the DIAGNOdent pen to scan each tooth without additional x-rays. With each scan, the results tell us whether there is decay within the tooth. If detected, we will discuss your treatment options and next steps.
