Although we still need x-rays to look between your teeth, a new technology allows us to scan the tops of your teeth with a cavity finding laser. This technology, called the DIAGNOdent, uses the reflected laser to measure the density of the enamel. It is particularly useful to find decay starting in the deep grooves of the teeth where a dental explorer (dental pick) cannot reach. By catching the decay early, we are able to treat the cavity with a conservative restoration, preserving tooth structure.
