CariVu’s Transillumination Technology
By hugging the tooth and bathing it in safe, near-infrared light, CariVu’s transillumination technology makes the enamel appear transparent while porous lesions trap and absorb the light. This unique caries detector allows the clinician to see through the tooth exposing its structure and the actual structure of any carious lesions with very high accuracy. This provides an edge over fluorescent imaging technologies. Since transillumination can show lesions in the beginning stages, using CariVu during routine prophylaxis can aid the hygienist in identifying questionable areas early on and decide on a course of preventive care. For patients who can’t have X-rays taken, CariVu is an alternative diagnostic method with which they can be comfortable doing.
Digital images can be captured and transferred directly from your mouth to our computer software. You no longer have to wait for film to develop, and Dr. Darryl can enlarge your x-rays for improved diagnostic ability.
We use a small, wand-like camera to take digital photos of your teeth and gums. This allows you to see exactly what Dr. Darryl sees.
With this topical anesthetic, we can numb the soft tissues around a treatment site without the use of needles, making this an excellent alternative to anesthetic injections when performing certain procedures.
