Cavity Detection

While dentists are trained to detect cavities in a variety of ways, poking and prodding—even x-rays—don’t catch everything.

Diagnosing cavities in the back of the mouth using traditional methods is difficult; studies even show that 50% of cavities are left undetected in these areas. However, today’s technologies enable the location of these cavities to put a stop to further decay. Snoop ™ is a new technology that stains infected areas in just 10 seconds. This dye detects caries in hard to see places and is more accurate than water-based formulas. Snoop is completely safe and helps us detect and treat cavities before they become a real problem.
