DIAGNOdent

DIAGNOdent Laser Cavity Screening

DIAGNOdent is a revolutionary new way for your dentist to find even the smallest areas of tooth decay and cavities. By using the advanced DIAGNOdent technology, we are able to treat small cavities and areas of tooth decay before they become larger issues requiring multiple procedures. DIAGNOdent is a quick, comfortable process that helps you and your doctor keep your smile healthy and happy for a lifetime.

How does DIAGNOdent work?

DIAGNOdent uses a precise laser scanning system to scan over all of your teeth while sending out a laser light signal and registering a digital read-out from the reflection or fluorescence of the enamel of the tooth. By measuring the fluorescence within each tooth’s structure, your dentist can identify where there may be cavities developing in the small spaces between, on, and on your teeth.
DIAGNOdent is comfortable and takes only a few short minutes to scan your entire mouth for cavities and decay. Detecting tooth decay as early as possible helps eliminate the number of costly treatments that you may need down the line and helps treat small problems before they become serious dental cases.

Not all cavities are noticeable without the help of the advanced DIAGNOdent laser screening.

Most tooth decay begins in the tiny cracks and grooves of your tooth’s surface. By the time the cavities are noticed, it’s often because there is a much larger problem, and the cavity itself was never seen or felt by the patient. With the widespread use of fluoride, many of these cavities never make it to the tooth’s surface, and instead begin eating away at the tooth from the inside out. The DIAGNOdent laser helps locate these small areas of decay. If you would like to be screened for possible tooth decay and cavities, please contact our practice and schedule an appointment. Help your teeth stay healthy!

  • I have been working with Dr. Shantzer for 12 years now.  It’s been a wonderful learning experience and I can’t wait to see what the next 12 years bring.  I really enjoy taking care of people and educating them on the importance of oral health.  I have been married for 8 years and have two young boys that keep me very busy.  I have to say, coming home to them is my favorite part of the day!

  • I have worked as a dental hygienist for over 20 years.  I was happy to join Dr. Shantzer and his team in 2011.  I enjoy our family of patients. It is my goal to give my patients the most thorough dental care while making them as comfortable as possible.  I have been married for 19 years.  I have three children and a Jack Russell dog named Gigi.  I enjoy being a mom and spending time with my family.

  • I assist Dr. Shantzer with patient care, place fillings, do lab work, and fill in where I am needed by my teammates. I have been working as an EFDA with Dr. Shantzer since 2005 when I graduated from Manor College.  I enjoy seeing the look on a patient's face when they see their new smile. The lifelong friendships that I have formed with my coworkers have also been very rewarding. I am a happily married mommy to 3 amazing sons. My boys are my life and keep me very busy. When I am not spending time with my family or working I enjoy shopping, sometimes a little too much!

  • I assist Dr. Shantzer during patient procedures, help out at the front desk and in the lab, and place fillings. I have worked in this office for my entire dental  career, since 2000 after graduating from Manor College, and couldn’t imagine a better place to be.
