Wouldn’t it be great if the dentist could findtooth decay before you see or feel it? With the innovative DIAGNOdent laser, Dr. Dory Stutman and Dr. Khalida Stutman find cavities in the earliest stages. This allows the dentists to conservatively treat the problem – so you’ll experience less (or no) pain and have smaller, more conservative restorations.
The progressive team at South Shore Dental Care stays current with advances in dentistry and adopts tools and technology that increase patient comfort and deliver fast, efficient care. DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection leads the way! It’s safe, accurate, non-invasive, and comfortable. What more could you ask for?
Dental decay starts small. Left untreated, it grows and can significantly impact oral and overall health. Studies show that bacteria that originate in the mouth can spread throughout the body and contribute to serious health problems, including osteoporosis, stroke, heart attack, pregnancy complications, and more.
How does DIAGNOdent work?
The DIAGNOdent laser gently scans teeth for cavities and areas of demineralization, which signifies potential for decay. DIAGNOdent is so advanced that it detects decay in hard to see places, such as along fissure lines and between teeth.
Early Detection is Best
Early detection means that your progressive Massapequa dentist can administer conservative treatment to renew and strengthen teeth. For example, instead of a filling, Dr. Dory or Dr. Khalida Stutman may suggest a fluoride treatment to strengthen a demineralized tooth that has not yet decayed. If you need a filling, however, the dentist will preserve as much of your natural tooth as possible and apply an all-white restoration that blends seamlessly with your existing smile.
