The Logicon™ is a caries (decay) software used on your digital radiographs (x-rays) that enhances the detection process for decay on natural and restored teeth. With a few clicks, the Logicon™ detection software applies an algorithm on your digital radiographs (x-rays) so surfaces in between your teeth are tested to generate a graphic analysis of potential decay, helping Dr. Sangiv I. Patel verify if a suspicious lesion seen by the naked eye is of concern or in need of treatment.
"This office is absolutely incredible. Dr Patel is extremely professional, patient & thorough. The staff is just as professional & personable. This appointment wasn’t easy for me to go to, but they made it easy. I will be referring family & friends to this office in a heartbeat. I can’t thank them enough."- L.S. / Google / Apr 23, 2022

"• Wish I had the mindset earlier in life to take personal time out for myself and develop a routine Floss-Floss-Floss. • Went every 6 months to the dentist and did what I thought was right. Was comfortable with where I was and felt I was receiving the best care. Then I came across Dr. Patel and found the care could be even better. His artistry and technology make him superior in the care he provides. • I decided to become engaged in my dental journey and make a commitment on my part for Dr. Patel to help me. • My TMJ disorder used to cause headaches, popping in my jaw and pain. One day I woke up and realized I hadn’t taken any Ibuprofen in days because I was finally feeling relief. I noticed that my overall quality of life began to change, and I no longer felt the stress and pain I had experienced for so long. • I think for everyone, money is a factor when it comes to taking care of themselves. I decided to invest in myself, and it has become the best gift I could’ve received. • Time is not a factor, and you are the priority at Dr. Patel’s office. The saying “Love the one you’re with” comes to mind every time I call the office or go in for an appointment. Each staff member makes you feel as though you’re the only one present and they’ve got all the time in the world for you. • I challenge any other doctor to have the same passion for dentistry and compassion for their patients as Dr. Patel does. If you go to Dr Patel, you will never change dentists again!"- D.B. / Google / Dec 06, 2021

Patients of any age with any natural teeth are candidates to receive Logicon™ testing on digital x-rays taken in our practice. Patients with decay, older or failing restorations or sensitive teeth are ideal candidates. Logicon testing allows you to have the peace of mind that your decay or failing restorations will not be missed, hence this results in early diagnoses and more conservative treatment. It helps save your teeth.
What To Expect
Used since 2008 in our practice, Logicon™ is non-invasive and objectively focuses on surfaces that require further investigation to aid in diagnosing areas of decay and failing restorations. The software locates and classifies potential decay in between teeth. It saves and displays selected results for multiple high-risk surfaces on a single radiograph. It accurately shows information by indicating the penetration depth of caries and generates probability information on whether or not decay is present. It allows tracking classification and probability changes over a period of time with the ability to retrieve information about tooth density changes and lesion probability for each surface in graphical format. We can review results quickly and then store them for later use.
The results of your Logicon™ caries software testing will be provided when you receive your treatment plan consultation, so you will understand the results and any treatment options that are recommended.
Typically, insurance coverage for Logicon™ caries software testing is dependent on your insurance coverage for digital radiographs (x-rays). This will vary from policy to policy so our office may contact your provider to determine your coverage and out-of-pocket costs. Whether you have dental insurance or not, Our Melbourne, FL facility accepts many payment methods, and we can also help you find low- interest dental financing if it is necessary, visit our Payments and Financing page for more information.
