FILLINGS THAT ARE SAFE AND DURABLE
Thanks to technological advances, we now have several alternatives when it comes to the materials we use to fill cavities. Depending on your needs, your dentist will suggest the various options available.
We utilize an Early Caries/Decay Detection System using an Infrared laser called Diagnodent (German innovation). This advanced technology helps in early detection of decay even before there are any outward symptoms of a decay having originated within the tooth structure, and with earlier treatment you always have better outcomes. When the laser detects a possible cavity, you’ll hear beeping and be able to check the reading on the display. Once again, in addition to its invaluable ability to detect caries at a very early stage and enable us to plan an effective treatment strategy, it also involves you in the process. This enables us to provide the most conservative approach possible in developing your treatment plan.
