DIAGNOdentWhile most cavities form in the surface of the tooth, they don't always. Thanks to the effects of fluoride, which hardens the tooth's enamel, cavities can actually begin to form underneath the tooth's surface, where they are more difficult to detect, and thus, less likely to receive treatment by a Naperville dentist at Advance Family Dental Care.

Many Naperville dentists struggle when trying to determine whether a suspicious spot in a tooth's surface could be a sign that a cavity is forming underneath. Dentists don't want to ignore hidden decay, allowing it time to spread, but they also don't want to open up a tooth unnecessarily. Thankfully, there is an exciting new technology that makes the process of finding hidden cavities much easier: DIAGNOdent.

What is DIAGNOdent?

DIAGNOdent is a pen-like device that your dentist at Advance Family Dental Care in Naperville can use to more accurately detect if you have hidden cavities. DIAGNOdent is convenient, easy to use and very accurate, making it an excellent tool for dentists.

How Does DIAGNOdent Work?

DIAGNOdent scans the tooth's surface with a laser beam in order to detect the amount of laser fluorescence within the tooth. If the tooth does not have hidden decay, no light will be reflected back to the instrument. If the tooth does have decay, more light is reflected. Dentists can tell if a tooth has internal decay or not simply by reading the numbers that the DIAGNOdent offers.

What are the Benefits of DIAGNOdent?

DIAGNOdent provides accurate, reliable results so dentists can diagnose and treat with confidence. It is safe, noninvasive, quick, easy and painless. It is even small and portable for the dentist's convenience. Both dentists and patients love DIAGNOdent.

Whether you visit your Naperville dentist for a routine check-up or for a more advanced procedure, you want to know that the results the dentist tells you are going to be accurate. Go to the dentist you can count on to give you the best care possible: your Naperville dentist at Advance Family Dental Care.
