Cavities & Tooth Decay

We Find Problems While They are Small

Soprolife Technology Means Earlier Detection

We want you to keep your own teeth for life. To help you do this we encourage regular check-ups so we can find the tiniest bits of tooth decay or cavities before they become major problems. Prevention is our goal. That is why we have invested in advanced early cavity detection technology like the Soprolife intra-oral camera and cavity detector.

The Soprolife is especially crucial because it can detect decay at its earliest stages, allowing us to utilize drill-less dentistry and possibly avoid the need for anesthetic (numbing), with far more conservative results. This laser can detect decay before it can be seen on x-rays and before we can see it with the naked eye.

If we do discover a cavity, don't worry; our restorative dentistry is comfortable and long lasting.

If we find more extensive damage, we may suggest a porcelain inlay or onlay. Inlays are used inside the cusps, or pointed tips, of the tooth, while onlays are used for larger restorations and cover both the inside and outside of the tooth. Both inlays and onlays are made of long-lasting, natural-looking material and are invisible in the smile.
