When cavities are in certain positions, x-rays don’t catch them until they’re larger. CariVu™ gets in these hard-to-see areas for early intervention. The faster we address decay, the easier and less invasive treatment will be.
We can broadcast images of your little one’s teeth right on our screen to show you and your child what we’re seeing in real time. How’s that for motivating kids to floss? It also improves communication, enabling you to make informed decisions about your child’s care.
A Second Opinion
This little cavity-detector acts as a “second opinion.” When an x-ray shows a suspicious area, it gives us a closer view without exposing a patient to any more radiation. Even small areas of decay don’t go undetected and healthy teeth aren’t misdiagnosed as having cavities.
Zero Ionizing Radiation
CariVu™ is small, portable and emits no ionizing radiation at all. What’s not to love? It gets its powers by using trans-illumination technology, which is a fancy term for bathing a tooth in light to reveal its structure. Plus, because of its size, it’s comfy for little mouths.
