The CariVu cavity detection system is a state-of-the-art technology used to diagnose tooth decay before it can develop enough to cause serious damage to your teeth and smile. This light-based cavity detection system can help our pediatric dentist diagnose cavities and guide their treatment in the earliest stages of development, often before they become visible to the eye.
CariVu technology is quick and comfortable to use. It detects tooth decay by using:
The high-quality images captured by the CariVu system can be displayed with other images of your teeth and supporting oral structures to give a more comprehensive view of your mouth and oral health. Additionally, this cavity detection system is a very helpful addition to the diagnostic technology that does not expose you to radiation and is a very safe option for pregnant women or for children and patients who are averse to X-rays.
