Digital X-Rays and Laser Diagnosis in Eagle, CO
Dental technology has come a long way and so has the technique of dental radiography. Taking X-rays is a crucial aspect of dentistry and diagnosing dental conditions. Digital X-rays and laser cavity detection are some of the newest technologies allowing for better and more accurate treatment diagnoses.
Today’s digital X-rays are safer and more accurate
Digital X-rays enable the dentists at Castle Peak Dental to detect oral health issues they would not otherwise see. With early detection, they can diagnose and treat problem areas before they become major problems. Modern digital X-ray technology is:
- Known to emit less radiation than 15 minutes in the sun
- More accurate, requiring fewer exposures
- Faster than radiographic imaging — the dentist can see them immediately

Our Eagle, CO dentists use the Kavo Diagnodent for laser cavity detection. Painlessly, we can detect cavities on the chewing surface of teeth that otherwise can be missed – and even sooner than with digital X-rays. This type of laser diagnosis can detect cavities when they’re small, allowing us to place smaller tooth colored fillings.
