CariVu is the latest technology in safely exposing the tooth's structure with the highest accuracy!
We want to ensure that our patients have the best care possible with the safest equipment.
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.
