At present, the extensive fluoride enhancement in our drinking water, toothpaste,
and dental materials have made tooth surfaces harder and more resistant to decay
than ever before.
Still, even with rigorous mouth hygiene, cavities can sneak in. Diagnosing these
cavities can be challenging due to the microscopic nature of the defects in the
surface enamel, and the problems can extend to the weaker parts of the tooth beneath
Silverman Family Dental uses the cutting edge
to identify even the smallest decay in its earliest stages.
The Diagnodent system is part of an exciting new generation of dental equipment.
The process employs laser light of a defined wavelength to help detect and quantify
broken down tooth substances without x-ray exposure.
A pen sized probe is waved over the tooth surfaces constantly checking the integrity
of the tooth surface. Older methods only check the outer surface of the tooth, and
many problems originate further inside the tooth structure. This tool can detect
problems more accurately and assertively than traditional methods and the best part,
it is completely pain free.
It is our goal to help you maintain or improve your oral health. The
that our patients and their families receive in our office always includes state
of the art equipment.
