Laser Dentistry

The Laser Scanner Finds Ultrasmall Cavities Years Earlier
Dental Laser Scanner CincinnatiAt your last visit to the dentist, you had no sign of a cavity. Now, just six months later, you’re wondering how you have a large cavity in such a short time. In reality, the cavity already existed – it just wasn’t detectable on X-rays or with visual examination. We use the Laser Scanner to identify even the smallest cavity, when it can be repaired with a very small, invisible filling. This technology allows Dr. Hagen to accurately pinpoint the cause of sensitivity and pain, allowing more of your natural tooth to remain intact.

Common Myths of Gum Disease # 6

I have diabetes. Will I get gum disease
Diabetes is a chronic disease which affects your body's ability to process sugar. The resulting high blood sugar can cause problems with your eyes, nerves, kidneys, heart and other parts of your body. Diabetes can also lower your resistance to infection and can slow the healing process. If you have diabetes, you are at greater risk of developing some oral health problems, including gum disease, so it's important that you are extra diligent with your oral health.
