We feel 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 amazing new diagnostic tool that lets us see into your teeth like never before to find cavities and cracks. The device uses safe, near-infrared trans-illumination 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 shown to reveal cavities earlier than X-rays and is 99% accurate in finding decay between teeth.
Zero Radiation – This exam is good for all patients and is especially beneficial for kids, pregnant women, and others who are X-ray adverse. Since it uses no ionizing radiation, it can be used as often as needed.
I’ll Show You What I See – The pictures can be screen-shared with you at a large size. This visualization can help provide insight into your condition and provide you with a better understanding of the recommended treatment plan.
Ongoing Record – We keep an image history of your teeth so we can compare images from visit-to-visit and monitor changes over time.
