We believe it’s important to invest in technology when it truly benefits our patients, so we’ve added DEXIS CariVu in our practice. CariVu is an new diagnostic tool that lets us see into your teeth to check for cavities and cracks. The device uses safe, near-infrared transillumination technology and zero ionizing radiation.
Easy and Painless – Flexible arms gently hug your tooth and bathe it in light. This gives the tooth a translucent appearance that allows us to see into it. A built-in camera captures video and pictures.
Early Detection – CariVu has been show to reveal cavities earlier than X-ray and is 99% accurate in finding decay between teeth. It also reveals cracks.
Zero Radiation – This exam is good for all patients and is especially beneficial for kids, pregnant women, and others who want are X-ray adverse. Since it uses no ionizing radiation, it can be used as often as needed.
