Early Detection of the Beginning of Cavities
Have you ever lived through this surprise scenario? You just went to the dentist six months earlier with a clean bill of dental health and now at your next appointment, the dentist shows you a rather large cavity on an X-ray. You sit in the dental chair and wonder how a cavity grew that big in such a short time. The answer is that the cavity was there, but it was not detectable with X-rays or other examination methods. At our practice, we use the laser scanner to find even the smallest cavity and take care of it before it becomes large. This type of laser also allows our dentist to accurately diagnose pain and sensitivity and follow up with the correct treatment, relieving any discomfort and maintaining your dental health.
