What makes CariVu unique?
Safe, No-dose Alternative
CariVu has filled the gap for children, pregnant women and others who may not be able to have traditional X-rays taken. For those patients who are X-ray averse, CariVu is an alternative diagnostic method with which they can be comfortable with.
Transillumination Imaging Technology
By hugging the tooth and bathing it in safe, near-infrared light, the CariVu transillumination technology makes the enamel appear transparent while porous lesions trap and absorb the light. This allows the clinician to see through the tooth, exposing any carious lesions
Early Caries Detection
Since transillumination can show lesions in the beginning stages, using CariVu during routine prophylaxis can aid the dental practitioner in identifying questionable areas early on and decide on a course of preventive care.
Early Detection for Caries Prevention
CariVu images read like familiar X-ray images — lesions will appear as dark areas. Since transillumination can show lesions in the beginning stages, using CariVu during routine prophylaxis can aid the dental practitioner in identifying questionable areas early on and decide on a course of preventive care.
Easy to Use for Any Practitioner
CariVu provides an edge over fluorescent imaging technologies in that there is no need to clean the tooth of bacteria, calibrate the device or become versed in the meaning of multiple color codes or numeric indicators. The device also comes with two tip sizes, one large size for adults and one small size for children, which are easy to attach and remove.
DEXIS Software Integration Makes the CariVu Workflow Simple
CariVu seamlessly integrates with the DEXIS Software, making it easy to compare the CariVu image in the current session with its historical and intraoral X-ray and camera counterparts. When used together, a radiograph, a transilluminated image, and an intraoral photo, CariVu is your ultimate companion tool for caries detection, providing a comprehensive picture of the health of a patient’s tooth.
Putting Caries Detection to Use
Engaging patients in their own care decisions is much easier when they see what their dentist sees. DEXIS CariVu helps doctors monitor caries to determine when to take action or when to wait. With no radiation, it’s appealing for patients who do not want X-rays or are not yet due for them. Find out how one doctor has seen DEXIS CariVu positively impact his workflow and patient experience.
