Diagnodent®

Dr. Rubinstein uses many types of lasers, including the Diagnodent, which is a safe fluorescent laser that detects hidden tooth decay accurately, quickly, and at the earliest possible stage.

Diagnodent® accurately exposes areas of tooth decay without scratching, probing or “opening up the tooth.”  This provides a greater chance of identifying, treating, and retaining a natural tooth without the need for expensive and time-consuming restorations.

How can Diagnodent® help me?

Because Diagnodent® exposes caries earlier, more treatment options are possible.  Here are some of the other benefits associated with Diagnodent®:

  • Allows dentists to perform treatment with greater confidence.
  • Allows for the investigation of suspicious areas.
  • Completely safe.
  • Cost effective.
  • Helps reduce future dental procedures.
  • More accurate than any other diagnostic tool.
  • No need for invasive investigations.
  • No pain or scratching.

What does the Diagnodent® process involve?

The Diagnodent® process is performed within the scope of a regular dental checkup.  It is strikingly similar to having a laser pointer aimed at the teeth.  Diagnodent® is a hi-tech tool, which painlessly scans a clean tooth surface with a laser beam, then provides a digital readout reflecting  the density of the underlying tooth structure.   Once the dentist determines which teeth are suffering from decay, a plan can be formulated and treatment options can be discussed.  In most cases, the early detection of decay means more treatment options and a greater chance of saving the affected tooth.

If you have any questions about Diagnodent®, please ask your dentist.
