Oral examinations and the search for cavities used to involve a lot of uncomfortable poking and prodding of the teeth’s surface. Now, laser cavity detection is employed at our cosmetic dentistry practice using advanced dental technology. Laser cavity detection allows our dentist—Edward Shukovsky, D.M.D.—to make an accurate analysis of a patient’s teeth so treatment can commence in complete confidence. To learn more about how your dental care experience can be enhanced by laser cavity detection, contact our practice in Stamford today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Shukovsky.
What Laser Cavity Detection Does for You
The KaVo DIAGNOdent laser is our laser cavity detection tool. It reliably recognizes and pinpoints tooth decay (also known as caries) and other teeth defects both inside the tooth and on the surface with supreme precision. Traditional methods of cavity and caries detection involved invasive prodding of teeth with a sharp tool. With laser cavity detection, the detection process is comfortable, non-invasive, and far more accurate. Because the development of caries in teeth often occurs beneath the surface, the KaVo DIAGNOdent laser makes it possible to catch and prevent further decay dramatically earlier than with traditional detection methods.
Laser cavity detection, when combined with regular teeth maintenance appointments, is invaluable in helping our patients maintain proper oral health. It makes the prospect of dental visits less intimidating, which is especially important for patients who are coping with dental phobia, as there is no pain and no needle to cause anxiety. Dr. Shukovsky uses laser cavity detection to give him the best information possible to make treatment decisions and educate our patients. This technology, along with Lightwalker laser dentistry and VersaWave® laser dentistry, makes our practice more effective at meeting our patients’ needs.
