Are you looking for safe, accurate and conservative laser dentistry in Stewartsville, Bethlehem and Phillipsburg? Look no further than DIAGNOdent laser exams from DeMartino Dental Group.
DIAGNOdent cavity detection
At DeMartino Dental Group, the team of Drs. Gaeton DeMartino, Nelida Garcia-DeMartino and Jeffrey DeMartino values patient comfort, accurate diagnostics and precise restorative and cosmetic treatments. Your optimal oral health is the reason why their dental practice exists!
One of the innovative ways they have to prevent extensive restorative work is through detection of decay at its earliest stages. While a practiced eye and skilled probing with traditional dental instruments works well, the dental laser improves upon these tools with excellent cavity detection rates.
The instrument of choice at DeMartino Dental Group is the DIAGNOdent handheld laser device. Gentle, cool and precise, DIAGNOdent find decay by aiming a precise laser at tooth surfaces. Oral bacteria and actual decayed surfaces react to this light with fluorescence measurable by the DIAGNOdent device. The dentist hears a tone when a cavity is found–even if he or she cannot actually see the damage.
This method of cavity detection is fast and effective, and anyone who gets a routine check-up and cleaning can receive a DIAGNOdent exam. DIAGNOdent is accepted by the American Dental Association and recommended for patients of all ages. So, could you be a candidate for a DIAGNOdent exam? The answer is definitely, “Yes!”
Rest assured that the DIAGNOdent system detects more decay than a handheld explorer instrument or x-rays alone. Plus, DIAGNOdent is silent–wonderful for the very young or very jittery patient. Used by thousands of dentists across the nation, DIAGNOdent finds cavities that would go untreated until more aggressive intervention became necessary.
Pioneers in PA laser dentistry
The dentists at DeMartino Dental Group assure you they possess extensive expertise in laser dentistry. The group installed the first soft argon medical laser in New Jersey and also the first YSGG hard tissue laser for restorative services involving enamel and bone. Their offices serve as East Coast training centers for these marvelous dental instruments.
Laser dentistry procedures include:
- Acceleration of cosmetic teeth whitening procedures
- Removal of diseased inner tooth pulp during root canal, or endodontic, therapy
- Tissue debridement in periodontal (gum disease) therapy
- Gum recontouring of uneven gum lines for cosmetic reasons or for placement of dental crowns or other restorations
- Treatment of canker sores
- Tissue removal for biopsy
With laser dentistry, patients experience little to no discomfort and usually require no anesthesia. That means no needles, sutures or bleeding. Plus, the whine of the dental drill is absent, a real benefit in pediatric dentistry.
