An early and accurate diagnosis is an important part of conservative dental treatment. Dr. Layth Ghanim and our team strive to address dental health concerns quickly and with the least-invasive procedures possible. We utilize DIAGNOdent™ laser cavity detection to pinpoint the location and extent of any tooth decay in your smile.
DIAGNOdent uses a handpiece to detect the earliest stages of tooth decay. Our team passes the handpiece over your teeth to receive a numerical rating of the health of each tooth; if tooth decay is detected, DIAGNOdent will alert our team, even if the decay is below the surface of the tooth and cannot be seen by the naked eye. DIAGNOdent allows us to create a treatment plan quickly to begin improving the health of your teeth before the decay worsens.
The laser cavity detection system is one of the most accurate systems, with a 90% success rate, and can make all the difference in the need for a simple filling versus a dental crown or dental implant. DIAGNOdent can help you preserve more of your natural smile by keeping treatments minimal, comfortable, and more affordable.
