CarieVU - Portable Caries Detection Device
This new technology will allow our team to diagnose decay before we see it clinically or on digital x rays. It's great for children and adults who have a difficult time taking x rays and for those concerned of radiation exposure from dental radiographs.
DEXIS CariVu™ is a portable caries detection device that uses transillumination technology to support the identification of occlusal, interproximal and recurrent carious lesions and cracks.
By hugging the tooth and bathing it in safe, near-infrared light, CariVu’s 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 its structure and the actual structure of any carious lesions with very high accuracy.
Just another way that our Vaudreuil dentists are 100% committed to your dental health.
