Dental caries, also described as tooth decay, is an infectious disease which damages the structures of teeth. If left untreated, the disease can lead to pain, tooth loss, infection, and, in severe cases, death. There is a long history of dental caries, with evidence showing the disease was present in the Bronze, Iron, and Medieval ages but also prior to the neolithic period. The largest increases in the prevalence of caries have been associated with diet changes. Today, it remains one of the most common diseases throughout the world.


We all value healthy and attractive teeth. In order to maintain them, the earliest possible care is essential. Here at Holt Dental Care we use a powerful tool called DIAGNOdent. DIAGNOdent aids in the detections of caries. Even very small lesions are detected at the earliest stage, enabling you to protect and preserve the tooth substance.

Conventional dental tools can’t detect hidden cavities. The DIAGNOdent uses advanced technology to find cavities otherwise undetectable.
