The powerful, extremely precise DIAGNOdent laser light allows Dr. DalBon to detect tooth decay in its earliest stages. It also enables Dr. DalBon to identify decay in less accessible area, such as cracks and crevices of your teeth. Using standard detection methods, these tiny cavities would probably go unnoticed until much larger. By treating tooth decay before it has a chance to spread, you increase your chances of preserving your natural teeth and reduce the possibility of future pain and damage. Prevention is always the best solution to tooth problems, and the DIAGNOdent laser makes such prevention easier than ever.
