examination and Diagnosis

Franklin Park Dental has digital radiographs and several modes of cavity detection instruments, including The Diagnodent (a laser which scans the tooth surface for decay) and CariVu, a high intensity light source and camera which transilluminates teeth to display decay. This is an exciting, radiation-free diagnostic tool which aids Dr. Tropinski in seeing decay that may not be visible on conventional x-rays. These are also used when Dr. Tropinski is performing a school exam. An aid in visual oral cancer screenings is available. It is called the Velscope, which projects a blue light into the oral cavity. When examined through a special viewer, abnormalities can be confirmed.
