CariVu continues in the long DEXIS tradition of providing intuitive, easy-to-use diagnostic tools for the dental community. The CariVu allows us to detect decay without any radiation! CariVu is a compact, decay detection system that uses transillumination technology to identify occlusal decay and fractures. It simply hugs the tooth with its near-infrared light, the CariVu’s transillumination technology makes your enamel appear transparent while porous lesions trap and absorb the light. This allows us to see through the tooth exposing its structure and the actual structure of any carious lesions with very high accuracy. More accurately than reading X-rays!
The use of advanced technology such as DEXIS Carivu in our practice allows us to provide comprehensive treatment, the imagery provided by DEXIS Carivu allows you to see what we can see! Carivu can reveal occlusal decay and fractures! The occlusal service of your tooth is the biting surface, decay and fractures on the biting surface of a tooth are often undetectable in a standard Radiograph.
Since there is ZERO Radiation from these diagnostic photographs, new images can be taken at each visit to monitor areas of concern and your overall oral health!
