Revolutionary gentle laser finds hidden cavities. The Diagnodent is a gentle, safe, and painless laser device that evaluates the tooth surface and gives a numeric scale reading to let Dr. Edwards and Dr. Cavendish know if decay is present. Then, based on clinical judgement, treatment can be prescribed. Most importantly, early detection allows for early treatment thereby preventing more serious tooth destruction. Surprisingly, in some cases, local anaesthetic, Novocain, may be unnecessary. Please ask a member of the dental team for further details.
