Cavity Detection System
While dentists are trained to detect cavities in a variety of ways, measuring and testing - even x-rays—don't catch everything.
Diagnosing cavities in the back of the mouth using traditional methods is difficult; studies even show that 50% of cavities are left undetected in these areas. However, today's technologies enable the location of these cavities to put a stop to further decay. We utilize transillumination light to take a closer look. It is completely safe and enhances the dentist's ability to find cavities (also called caries). Better accuracy for better treatment plans—it's technologies like this that help us detect and treat cavities before they become a real problem.
