CariVu™

Caries Detection Device

CariVu uses patented transillumination technology to identify caries (cavities) and cracks on the surface of your teeth, as well as in the hard-to-see areas between your teeth. Using safe, near-infrared light, CariVu allows doctors an almost transparent view of your teeth in order to see structural anomalies and carious lesions.

The images look like traditional X-rays and provide similar diagnostic information, but CariVu does so without the use of radiation, which makes it ideal for children, pregnant women, and patients unwilling or unable to undergo a traditional dental X-ray.

Catching cavities early makes all the difference!

Most tooth decay begins in the tiny cracks and grooves of your tooth’s surface. CariVu’s illuminating technology can help us:

  • Detect tooth decay as early as possible
  • Eliminate or reduce the number of costly treatments you may need in the future
  • Treat small problems before they become serious dental issues
  • Ensure you achieve a lifetime of oral health safely and comfortably
