Prevention and early detection of dental issues are essential when it comes to keeping dental treatment needs minimal. Our dentists in Issaquah, WA, Dr. Kimberly Santiago and Dr. Jed Santiago, use laser cavity detection to expose dental caries before they are visible on dental x-rays or noticed during routine exams. By catching cavities at the earliest point possible, our laser dentists are able to prevent a small cavity from growing into a major dental problem.Cavities tend to hide in crevices of the teeth on the biting surface and around old metal fillings. Because of this, decay is difficult to detect with both x-rays and visual exams.
Laser cavity detection uses a laser light to give our laser dentists a digital readout that shows even the smallest amount of decay. Dental caries caught early means shallower fillings and more of the natural tooth structure is preserved.
Laser cavity detection is safe for your whole family as there is no radiation exposure involved. The laser light our laser dentists use is safe to use on patients of all ages and as often as needed.
