Diagnostic Laser in Vancouver
We use a diagnostic laser in our practice, the Diagnodent. This small device looks like a small red light that we shine on the tooth structure, primarily on the grooves, pits and fissures. It measures the density/decalcification in the enamel and provides feed back with a numerical reading that can be compared visit to visit, and with an audible sound that becomes faster and more high pitched as the degree of breakdown in the enamel increase.
This device is ideal for young children who may not be comfortable with a radiograph, as well as for pregnant women. It provides a great tool to measure changes in the enamel visit to visit.

The RCDG Difference…
New Patient Visit – How it Works
During your first visit we will take some digital X-Rays and see what’s going on inside of your mouth. Then, we’ll learn about your oral health goals and come up with a treatment plan.
Your Mouth, Your Decisions
Once we have shared our recommendations, we want you make the best decisions for yourself. We will never be pushy or recommend treatments that you do not need.
