Providing the absolute best service to our patients is of the highest importance to our dental office, Fulp Family Dentistry in Tifton Georgia. To aid in achieving this goal, we use a new high-tech device called the DIAGNOdent. This small dental tool is a portable laser that allows for efficient cavity detection on the chewing surface of the back teeth that would have otherwise gone undetected by previous methods of use. Diagnosing cavities in the back of the mouth using solely traditional methods is difficult; studies even show that 50% of cavities are left undetected in these areas. However, the new DIAGNOdent enables us to locate and treat these cavities, putting a rapid stop to further decay. The laser is easy to use, harmless, and will alert us with an audible signal if it detects a cavity. It will even calculate the approximate size of the cavity so we can better plan treatment. By using this device, you can rest assured that cavities will be accurately detected and treated in their infancy.
