At Midlothian Dental Arts, we work hard to detect and halt tooth decay at the earliest possible stage. An integral part of this is an innovative laser cavity detection system we use called DIAGNOdent. The DIAGNOdent system is excellent at detecting tooth decay before it is visible to the naked eye. This means we can treat tooth decay early.

The benefits of detecting and treating tooth decay in the earliest possible stage include:

  • More conservative restorations
  • Less discomfort
  • Less expense
  • More preservation of natural tooth structure

Using the DIAGNOdent laser, we can give a numeric rating that indicates the health of each tooth. If a tooth is showing signs of decay, the system alerts our dental team who can then create a customized treatment plan. Using this system in combination with our experienced dentists, we have been able to maintain one of the most accurate cavity detection systems available.
