There Is Such A Thing As Painless Fillings?

Painless Fillings

For the dental patients who have endured the agony of pain in past filling procedures and abhor the idea of getting another filling, the possibility of painless fillings is good news. The drill is often the main reason patients suffer pain during the filling session. With innovation in dental technology, there are new methods through which dentists can afford completely painless fillings and cavity treatment for their patients.

DIANOdent laser

This technology is being applied by many dentists with an objective of preventing the need for fillings. This is because the technology has made it possible to arrest tooth decay in its early stages of development rather than waiting for the decay to progress to a level where fillings cannot be avoided. It was almost impossible to detect tooth decay before the DIANOdent laser was innovated, especially where the exterior part of a tooth remained healthy. This is because in such circumstances there are no visible signs that something might be going wrong inside the tooth.

The DIANOdent laser has made it incredibly possible for dentists to forecast potential issues related to tooth decay. The laser has the capacity to identify the teeth which might have a problem. These teeth will then be treated using micro abrasions, a technique requiring no drilling so as to perform a filling. This is only possible when the decay condition is identified early enough.

Painless and safe laser

This equipment is pen shaped. It works by sending a painless and safe fluorescent laser light beam into a tooth. A numerical display coupled with an alarm is sent whenever there are signs of disguised decay. The DIANOdent laser technology is considered a lot more accurate compared to any other decay and cavity detection methods, especially in locations where it is hard to detect cavities, such as in fissures and pits on chewing surfaces where significant levels of decay emanate from.

The DIANOdent laser technology makes it possible to identify and treat cavities before any significant damage happens. Technology-driven dentists are now able to meticulously analyze and measure the health levels of teeth whenever a patient undergoes the test. It has also become possible to examine decay progression over time. With the DIANOdent equipment, the patient can enjoy complete comfort and is guaranteed of optimum safety from harmful radiation during examinations. This is a new and promising invention in dental defect diagnosis.

Functionality of the DIANOdent

This equipment works by sending laser light beams onto the surface of a tooth with the objective of detecting any defects on tooth structure. Through the process of dispersing of the laser light onto the surface, a defective tooth will exhibit fluorescence in proportions of the level of cavities it carries. A healthy and clean tooth structure will exhibit minimal to no fluorescence. This causes a low to zero reading on the DIANOdent’s numerical display.

Other benefits of the DIANOdent

  • Completely safe
  • Makes examination of questionable teeth easy
  • Dentists can treat defective teeth with more confidence
  • A cost-effective way of detecting decay
  • No scratching or pain characteristic in fillings
  • Noninvasive process of examining teeth
  • Zero exposure to radiations as would be with X-rays
  • Better accuracy compared to other tools of diagnosis
  • The results can be measured empirically
