Preventing and treating tooth decay is one of the most important facets of general dentistry. Treating cavities in their earliest stages aids in the prevention of more serious problems in the future, so it becomes necessary to identify decay even when it isn’t visible to the naked eye. In order to diagnose and treat dental caries sooner than ever before, Dr. Kalarickal relies upon the trusted technology of DIAGNOdent®. DIAGNOdent® can effectively identify tooth decay that occurs even between the teeth, allowing us to begin treatment before the cavity grows wider and deeper.
Prior to the advent of technology like DIAGNOdent®, finding areas of decay within the mouth essentially involved a visual examination and x-rays. Teeth that were suspected of harboring decay were probed and prodded to test for sensitivity and soft spots in the enamel, often causing the patient discomfort in the dental chair. Today, however, the DIAGNOdent® laser scan takes the pain and worry out of the equation. This safe and painless procedure allows us to explore the surfaces of the enamel for signs of cavities, providing accurate results in mere minutes.
