High Tech Cavity Detection
Your old dentist may still be using only a dental pick to look for “sticky” dental decay. Maybe that was high tech in the 1800’s, but we don’t practice old-fashioned dentistry. Our Doctors and Hygiene Team use a DIAGNOdent laser, which is a laser tool that helps uncover evidence of caries or cavities that are yet invisible to even the most trained eye. Your Mesa dental care is enhanced by this advanced equipment that saves tooth structure by catching decay early before it becomes deep and often before it reaches the nerve endings allowing decay to be cleaned and filled with tooth-colored filling material without any anesthesia. This decay often hides sub-surface, but can be detected by the DIAGNOdent, and therefore treated immediately, to stop further damage.
