Laser Diagnostics

Lasers can be an invaluable tool in the detection of cavities (caries), especially when the tooth looks whole and healthy on the surface, or when only a small portion of the cavity is visible.

The laser light can penetrate into tiny fissures to allow dentists to see further inside the tooth with more detail than has ever been possible with traditional dental instruments, including X-rays and probes. Therefore, any problems discovered can be treated quickly and early, before they require extensive dental work.  Based on the findings determined by the laser, your dentist will recommend the best course of treatment, from simple preventive measures to minimally invasive restoration.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I see the dentist?

Children, teens, and adults should all see us for a regular checkup at least once every six months. Patients who are at a greater risk for oral cancer or gum disease may be required to come in more than just twice a year. Dr. Durand will help determine how often you should visit our office for regular checkups.
