    Cavity Laser?

    Do any of your dentists use a laser to check for cavities? I went for a checkup and they found 2 cavities they would not have found on an X-ray. Gotta go back on the 3rd to get drilled. It's surprising too, since I've never had any cavities before, ever, which makes me wonder if they're smoking crack.

    In any case, I'm going to improve my dental hygeine (as in don't skip days when brushing) as soon as my gums quit hurting.

    What are you searching here. A Doctor or a patient. I brush twice a day. You may be smelling. (ooomph!!!)

    - err, that would be the last thing that would come to my mind.

    Maybe seek a second opinion dude

    The laser they use is supposely 90% accurate, compared to the old method (54%). Then again, I have been eating poorly due to summer vacation, and that may have contributed. Oh well.
