Cavity Detection without Radiation
Dexis CariVuTM is a new, compact, portable decay detection device that uses a patented transillumination technology. This technology uses light to produce an image like that of an x-ray, but without the x-ray exposure. CariVuTM is safe for patients of any age and can be particularly helpful for patients with small mouths or strong gag reflex.
With the CariVuTM, we can safely and effectively detect cracks and tooth decay as we view the scan on a high-definition monitor. Also, with the CariVuTM technology, we can reduce the need for X-ray exposure by roughly 50% over time.
