Laser Assisted Cavity Detection

Discovering cavities before they cause major damage is key to keeping your teeth in their healthiest, most natural condition. That’s why we use laser cavity detection. This special laser allows us to detect even very small lesions and incipient cavities long before any sign of decay would show on an x-ray. In fact, it can find 50 percent of the decay that goes undetected by radiography. And when the first signs of decay are detected this early, our most minimally invasive procedures can be used, saving much more of your own tooth enamel. This laser is truly valuable in the prevention of dental problems and the promotion of good oral health.
