St. Joseph, MO (PRWEB) April 10, 2013
St. Joseph, MO dentist, Dr. Steven Propst, recently introduced Diagnodent at his local practice to give patients access to the latest advancement in decay detection and prevention. Using a safe fluorescent laser, Diagnodent is able to detect early signs of decay better than physical exams and X-rays, and has shown to be more than 90 percent accurate with detection.
Diagnodent provides a more comfortable and more accurate exam procedure for patients of Dr. Steven Propst in St. Joseph, MO and helps reduce their chance of requiring major dental restoration work in the future. Similar to having a laser pointer aimed at a patient’s teeth, Diagnodent eliminates the need for exposure to X-rays and also doesn’t require any invasive exams or bitewings required for traditional X-rays.
Diagnodent can detect even earliest signs of decays using reflective light. When detected early enough, patients have a better chance of requiring less invasive restorative work, and being able to keep more of their natural tooth structure.
“As a dentist, my job is just as much about preventative care as it is about restorative care,” said Steven Propst DDS. “Our goal is to help our patients have healthy smiles, and with Diagnodent, we’re able to provide them with more accurate information about the true health of their smile. When decay is detected early enough, we can take the necessary steps to remove it and fix the tooth before it becomes so advanced that the tooth has to be drilled, crowned, or even extracted.”
Reviews of Dr. Steven Propst’s use of Diagnodent during routine exams have been excellent. Patients report that their dental exams are much more comfortable and that they feel more informed about the health of their smile afterward.
“Our practice really focuses on thorough exams because we are true believers that preventative care and education are the best steps to optimal dental health,” said Steven Propst DDS. “We are always looking for new ways to improve our exams, and Diagnodent has helped us do that.”
In addition to using the latest technology for preventative care, Dr. Steven Propst is highly trained in cosmetic dentistry and offers his St. Joseph, MO patients dental implants, veneers, onlays and inlays, crowns, bridges and more. He and his staff also provide teeth whitening, treatment for periodontal disease and emergency dental care.
