North Andover DIAGNOdent™
In addition to x-rays, we also use the DIAGNOdent™ dental laser to safely and effectively check for cavities and other microscopic changes on the surface of your teeth.
The DIAGNOdent uses a light source we shine over your teeth to see if there is anything unusual about the tooth surface, such as a microscopic cavity. Your dentist can even check for decay under crowns.
If there is a problem, this causes a different type of light to be bounced back to the instrument. This light is transferred into an audible sound, which helps us determine the treatment you need.
