What is DEXIS CariVu?
DEXIS CariVu is a cavity-detection device that emits no radiation. Because some patients are averse to X-rays and radiology instruments, we use CariVu to make sure we can diagnose all our patients in a way that keeps them comfortable.
How Does It Work?
The technology behind DEXIS CariVu is called near-infrared light, and it allows Dr. Eliot Tokowitz to transilluminate your teeth. Because cavities and cracks absorb this light, they will show up as dark spots on the image, making them easy to notice.
Sometimes it’s great to get a second opinion. Alongside traditional X-ray procedures, DEXIS CariVu can be used to see your teeth in a different light. Together, X-rays and CariVu images give a well-rounded picture showing the health of your teeth. CariVu can be used together with other dental tools as well, allowing our dentist to give you the most robust, professional treatment.
