Decay detection is the number one weapon against tooth decay and tooth root infection. Performed as an integral part of your regular dental exam, decay detection is a painless procedure that arms your dentist with vital information about your dental health.
Using a series of X-rays, the decay detection exam can reveal decay damage that cannot otherwise be seen – by you or your dentist. The tiniest spots of decay in tooth enamel are exposed, along with bone loss and tooth root infection. These potential threats to your good dental health can be treated using less invasive or extensive measures because they are so tiny.
