We use a new technology called a Diagnodent, which can detect hidden decay in its early stages.

Diagnodent is a small, harmless laser light, which scans your teeth searching for hidden decay. The external surface of a tooth may appear healthy while in actuality microscopic defects in the hard surface enamel are starting to break down and decay. Once this decay passes through the enamel layer, it spreads very quickly to the second (dentin) layer. If the decay is detected early, it can be removed quickly and easily.
