Less than a decade ago, diagnostic tools for detecting attenuation included vision testing, probe exploration, or blinking to evaluate film X-rays. Now our new investigative tools include dynamic technologies such as digital imaging, transmissive lighting and laser dental caries detection.
Both pediatric dentists and general dentists do their best to care for young patients in a harmless manner, and most importantly, take care of them in a painless manner. When faced with traditional explorers, paediatric patients often feel threatened, resulting in children not cooperating and making the visit immature. In addition, it has been demonstrated that traditional dental probes can actually promote the caries process. Laser dental caries detectors provide a popular choice for patients and parents.
The system I invest in has a standard unit and a wireless “pen” version that is harmless and even allows children to take the exam. Young children associate laser tooth detection pens with digital thermometers, while older children say that reminds them of remote controls. When I call the dental caries probe my "magic wand," pediatric patients will turn into patients willing to receive treatment, waiting for each spell. When it comes to keeping in touch with familiar things, "Show Show" behavior management technology has become a fun counting game that is "win-win" for any dentist.
This technology is not limited to young patients. Laser bleed detection is particularly useful for darker enamel dark adult patients. It cannot be overemphasized that active detection may cause further damage to the damaged tooth structure. The decision to "observe" the area over time may also put teeth at risk. Now, after the laser detector reads quickly, you can continue to perform the appropriate treatment.
Here's how my system works: The non-invasive dental handpiece uses a specialized tip that shines the laser below the occlusal surface. Lasers produce fluorescence because they detect demineralized tooth matter and bacterial by-products. The harmless, high-intensity fluorescent light interacts with the detector in the dental handpiece (or dock) and displays a number on the LED screen. The amount of fluorescence and its corresponding amount are proportional to the amount of attenuation. With more than 90% accuracy, this quantification feature allows dental professionals to digitally record the progress of the fistula process. Doctors can choose the best restorative interventions to maximize structural integrity and protect the teeth involved.
Quantitative results can be monitored for a period of time
The use of laser detection technology in dental practice today continues to support the industry's commitment to prevention. Using this technique can increase the efficiency of care and help protect deciduous and adult dentition.
