DEXIS™ CariVu™ allows dentists and hygienists to see into your teeth like never before,
find cavities, and capture pictures of your teeth for diagnostic review and sharing with you on-screen.
Painless and simple cavity identification
The exam is painless and simple. Flexible arms gently hug the tooth and bathe it in near-infrared light as the built-in camera captures live video and still images.
Safe for everyone – even kids and pregnant women
CariVu can be safely used on every person as often as needed, and because it uses no X-rays, it’s especially beneficial for kids, pregnant women and others who want to avoid ionizing radiation.
Find cavities earlier
With this technology, a potential cavity may be identified sooner which can call for taking more preventive measures then monitoring changes over time. CariVu is particularly good for finding a cavity between teeth, even in the early stages. Since its actual size and shape can be seen, treatment can be more targeted.
Find hard-to-find cracks in teeth
It’s also useful for discovering a crack. Since the tooth can be viewed from multiple angles, it makes it easier to see the shape and extent of a fracture and aids in determining the best course of action.
Images can be used to track changes over time and to share with specialists
Images are stored in your patient record and can be compared from visit to visit. They can also be shared with specialists when necessary.
