At Washington Square Dental, we are dedicated to helping you keep your smile healthy, functional, and beautiful. One of the keys to keeping your smile healthy is detecting and diagnosing dental problems as soon as possible. We utilize a laser cavity detector to detect dental caries at the earliest possible stage, allowing us to provide treatment that is efficient, conservative, and effective. When decay is caught early, our caring dentists can often provide a restoration that is less invasive and less expensive, allowing us to conserve more of the natural tooth structure. If decay is allowed to progress untreated, it can cause more serious damage and pain, requiring more extensive treatment in the future.
The laser cavity detector works by using a fluorescent laser. This allows Dr. Rashidi to detect cavities even when they still lie beneath the surface of the tooth. By offering dental services involving a dental laser in Tigard, OR, we can identify cavities and tooth decay that would go unnoticed in a normal dental exam or even when using digital X-rays. We welcome you to contact us today to learn more about our laser cavity detection system and to further discover its benefits as a dental service. We look forward to caring for your smile!
