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.
