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 Dr. Gaddy 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, making 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
