DEXIS™ CariVu™

This technology is a compact, portable detection device that uses patented transillumination technology to support the identification of occlusal, interproximal and recurrent carious lesions and cracks.

If you identify a suspicious area on a radiograph — especially possible interproximal decay which can be more difficult to detect — your “second opinion” can be a transilluminated image that reveals the extent of the condition and helps you confidently determine whether it needs monitoring over time or requires immediate treatment.

Since transillumination can show lesions in the beginning stages, using CariVu during routine prophylaxis can aid the hygienist in identifying questionable areas early on and decide on a course of preventive care.

When used together, a radiograph, a transilluminated image and an intra-oral photo provide a comprehensive picture of the health of a patient’s tooth.
