DEXIS™ CariVu™ allows our dentists to see your teeth like never before and capture pictures that both you and our dentists can review for tooth decay with ZERO radiation! This decay detection system that uses near-infrared light to allow us to see through the tooth exposing its structure and the actual structure of any carious lesions with very high accuracy. Since there is no radiation, we can take new images during your visits to monitor any areas of concern.
The exam is painless and simple. Flexible arms gently hug the tooth and bathe it in near-infrared light as the built-in camera takes video and still images. Because there is no radiation, CariVu can be safely used on everyone as often as needed and is safe for kids, pregnant women, and others who want to avoid radiation.
