So much of dentistry involves fixing problems, but finding those problems usually comes first. Whether detecting minor caries or oral cancer, the dentist has increasingly helpful tools available. Technologies leveraging biofluorescence, chemiluminescence, transillumination, and other advances help dentists diagnose problems earlier and more accurately. These devices are mostly small, lightweight, and ergonomic, making them easy for the dentist to use and comfortable for the patient. As an increasing number of healthcare professionals and patients understand and appreciate the link between oral and systemic health-and the dentist's role in it-staying up to date with the latest technology in diagnostics is of paramount importance.
