Cutting Edge Digital Imaging
While our low-emitting digital radiograph systems provide us with very accurate diagnostic x-ray images; at Dentistry for Children, we understand overexposure can be a risk for select patients that visit healthcare providers more often than others.
At Dentistry for Children, we pride in educating not only our patients but their parents as well on the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene and the impact dental disease can have on their health. To provide great visual, high-resolution intra-oral photos can be taken to indicate the areas of concern in the mouth that need greater attention.
Introducing CariVu: Compact, Portable Caries Detection Device
DEXIS CariVu is a compact, portable caries detection device that uses patented transillumination technology to support the identification of occlusal, interproximal, and recurrent carious lesions and cracks. CariVu continues the long DEXIS tradition of providing intuitive, easy-to-use diagnostic tools for the dental community.
What makes CariVu unique?
- Uses transillumination technology that makes the enamel appear transparent while porous lesions trap and absorb light
- Allows the clinician to see through the tooth, exposing its structure and the development of any carious lesions
- CariVu images read like familiar X-ray images
- Uses non-ionizing radiation which is ideal for children, pregnant women, and patients who are X‑ray averse
