DIAGNOdent™ Finds Ultrasmall Cavities Years Earlier
Have you ever had a dentist find a
cavity and place a large filling, and wondered why the
filling is so large if the cavity wasn't there just six
months before? The cavity was there six months before —
it just wasn't big enough to show on X-rays, and it
wasn't visible to the dentist yet. The DIAGNOdent can
find cavities years earlier, when the small cavity can
be removed and repaired with a small invisible bonded
restoration. Sometimes patients complain of tooth
sensitivity, or mild to severe pain, yet X-rays and
examination cannot pinpoint the source. Patients are
often given sensitivity toothpaste to deal with the
problem. However, sometimes, dentists have to perform
root canals to get the pain or sensitivity to stop, when
the actual source turned out to be undetectable decay.
The DIAGNOdent can detect previously undetected decay
and, once identified, allow us to remove the discomfort
and leave you with a healthy smile.

Without Drills or Needles?
Is it possible to go to the
dentist and never feel the drill or the pinch of that
dreaded needle? One of the most spectacular advances in
recent dentistry is called air abrasion. Instead of a
conventional drill, this device aims a stream of tiny
particles and air at the area of decay and gently mists
it away! Many patients require little or no anesthesia
at all. The sound and vibrations of the drill are gone –
and so is most of the pain! For many procedures, it’s
good-bye needles, good-bye drill!
How Your New Smile Will Look Before Any
Cosmetic imaging allows us to show
you what can be done with your teeth and smile before
you even start treatment. Computer images of your teeth
and gums can be shaped, replaced, added, or lightened,
resulting in your new smile. It is exciting to actually
see your treatment goal.
