    Dr. Nathaniel Lim, Introduces New Technology for Early Cavity Detection

    Dr. Nathaniel Lim of Oak Park Dental Associates in Oak Park, IL recently introduced new technology that is helping detect cavities in their earliest stages, allowing patients to keep more of their healthy tooth structure. DIAGNOdent is some of the latest dental technology available that is helping Dr. Lim improve his services for restorative dentistry in Oak Park, IL.

     

    The DIAGNOdent Laser Detection Caries Aid by Kavo is the first technology of its kind to expose cavities through fluorescence. Prior to the availability of this technology, dentists had to rely on x-rays and visual exams to detect cavities, and often times, caries were only discovered in their later stages. DIAGNOdent, however, has been proven to be 90 percent more accurate than traditional x-rays in detecting developing cavities in their beginning stages.

     

    “The DIGANOdent laser has really changed the way we approach preventative and restorative dentistry at our practice,” said Dr. Nathaniel Lim, cosmetic and dental implants dentist in Oak Park, IL. “Because we’re able to find these cavities in their earliest forms, we’re often able to provide patients with less-invasive restorative care and overall help them keep more of their natural, healthy tooth.”

     

    The process of detecting cavities with DIAGNOdent is painless for the patient and only requires the use of a small handheld device that is essentially scanned over each tooth. The advanced fluorescence technology exposes occlusal pits and fissures better than any other tool in the industry.

     

    In addition to preserving more of the tooth structure which is healthier for the patient, DIAGNOdent technology also helps reduce dental care costs for patients who receive regular care. Because cavities are detected in their earliest phases, Dr. Lim is not required to use as extensive methods of restoration to ensure optimal oral health.

     

    In addition to his emphasis on preventative and restorative care, Dr. Lim is also a highly regarded cosmetic dentist in the area who specializes in dental implants, veneers, teeth whitening, and more. He is also a certified Invisalign dentist in Oak Park, IL.Dr. Lim is a graduate of Northwestern University Dental School. After graduation, he went on to receive additional training and education at The Dawson Center as well as The Spear Institute. In his continuing education courses, Dr. Lim became experienced with the treatment of bite problems and jaw pain, and is now one of the most experienced TMJ dentists in Oak Park, IL.
