In addition to x-rays, we also use a Fiber Optic Light device to safely and effectively check for cavities and other microscopic changes on the surface of your teeth.
The Trans-illuminator device is a powerful Laser LED light source we shine over your teeth to see if there is anything unusual about the tooth surface, such as a microscopic cavity or cracks in the teeth.
The light goes through the enamel surface and Dr. Zembroski and his hygienists can check for very early decay in a tooth, cracks, large decay under the enamel which looks like a stain, a cracked cusp, and it can even give indication of problems under old sealants.
Many times these problems are not seen on x-rays. This great technology helps us see early problems with teeth and it determines the Best and Fastest treatment you need.
