Our Office Has Modern Technology!



Patients, meet the Diagnodent! For those of you who are not yet acquainted with the Diagnodent, it is an amazing little piece of technology that our office uses! The Diagnodent (manufactured by Kavo) is a safe and accurate cavity detection device. The Diagnodent laser can detect a cavity before an xray can! This noninvasive device allows the dentist to find cavities just as they are beginning so that our staff can properly monitor, or treat the cavity at it earliest stage.


The Diagnodent can help preserve tooth structure-  if a cavity is found early, less tooth structure can be removed when a filling must be done. Furthermore, the Diagnodent acts as a “laser set of eyes” for the dentist, and can help confirm the diagnosis of tooth decay. At Richards Frankel Dentistry we use the Diagnodent to monitor teeth so that if a cavity forms, we catch it early!

Along with digital xray, we keep a close watch on each and every tooth to make sure our patients’ teeth stay healthy!

From your modern dentista,



Its Mouthguard Season!


With fall sports season comes the need for custom-fitted mouthguards! Here at Richards Frankel Dentistry we can make you and your children custom fitting mouthguards that optimize facial protection when playing contact sports. Over-the-counter mouthguards provide significantly LESS protection than do custom-fitted mouthguards.


Why wear a mouthguard?

Mouthguards help you avoid injuries to the mouth when playing sports such as basketball, softball, football, wrestling, soccer, lacrosse, rugby, hockey, field hockey, and skateboarding.

Common injuries that can be avoided include:

  • jaw fracture
  • broken teeth
  • split lips
  • concussion (mouthguards may reduce the likelihood of concussion)


Why wear a custom-fitted professional mouthguard?

A mouthguard made by your dentist is made to an exact model of your teeth, so it fits! It doesn’t require that the athlete hold it in place by biting on it.  Mouthguards sold at sporting goods stores, or drugstores are not able to create a tight fit to the teeth and are often loose and bulky, thus providing less protection and are less durable. While an over-the-counter mouthguard is less expensive, it is less durable, and is not backed by your dentist’s warranty.

Don’t let you or your children be more susceptible to injury! Have a custom mouthguard made by Richards Frankel Dentistry and let the games begin!

Happy sports season,


Dr. Frankel
