DIAGNOdent technology reduces fear in patients and prevents more expensive and invasive procedures.
Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) August 07, 2013
Dr. Robert Shimasaki recently introduced DIAGNOdent technology to improve oral health of patients at Park Place Dental Care in Pasadena, CA. DIAGNOdent utilizes breakthrough technology to detect cavities at the earliest stage, giving patients more oral health benefits. The system is proven to be more than 90 percent accurate at detecting cavities.
Dr. Shimasaki understands patients’ apprehension towards cavity treatments, such as fillings or root canals, and knows that patients would like to avoid those treatments if at all possible. DIAGNOdent gives him assurance to properly diagnose caries earlier, which reduces the need for invasive treatments. Instead, minimally invasive treatments can be used, such as air abrasion and micro rotary instruments.
“I believe in complete dental and oral health for my patients and I understand their concerns,” said Dr. Robert Shimasaki, pediatric dentist in Pasadena, CA. “DIAGNOdent technology reduces fear in patients and prevents more expensive and invasive procedures.”
The use of fluoride treatments over the past few decades has improved dental health; however, over time cavities (often referred to as caries) have moved below the enamel, making it hard for dentists to diagnose. DIAGNOdent operates using a fluorescent light to reflect bacteria. A tooth that has no caries will not reflect fluorescent light and a tooth with caries will reflect fluorescent light and indicate on the device the degree of caries. Given this information, Dr. Shimasaki determines the adequate treatment safely and without X-ray exposure.
Dr. Shimasaki is the most highly ranked dentist in the Pasadena, CA area. Recently he achieved a 97 percent approval rating. He is committed to giving his patients elite oral health and a kind and welcoming environment.
In addition to DIAGNOdent state-of-the-art technology, he uses Zoom technology for teeth whitening. He is a highly trained dental implants dentist in Pasadena, CA. For patients who suffer from anxiety towards aspects relating to dentistry, he is a sedation dentist and for patients seeking straight teeth without the hassles of traditional braces, he is an Invisalign dentist.
For more than three decades, Dr. Shimasaki has practiced excellence in dentistry. To remain in the forefront of dentistry, he is a member of the ADA, California Dental Association, Crown Council, Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, and American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
