When it comes to digital x-ray and imaging, the quality of the product and the technology it offers is of the utmost importance. After all, digital x-rays and images are used to spot and fix potential major oral issues from developing. When it comes to your mouth, you are trusting us, and that’s why at Cooper City Family Dentistry, we trust the Dexis CariVu Transilliminator.
Dexis CariVu is a compact, portable caries detection device that uses patented transillumination technology to support the identification of occlusal, interproximal and recurrent carious lesions and cracks. CariVu’s transillumination technology makes the enamel appear transparent while porous lesions trap and absorb the light. This unique caries detector allows the clinician to see through the tooth exposing its structure and the actual structure of any carious lesions with very high accuracy.
At Cooper City Family Dentistry, your comfort and oral health are priority number one for us. That’s why we offer the Dexis CariVu Transilluminator as an alternative to traditional x-rays for patients who are not comfortable having them taken for whatever reason. It’s also just another way that we can ensure that your overall oral health is always as good as possible.
What Are Some of the Benefits?
- Early Detection – CariVu has been proven to reveal cavities earlier than a traditional x-ray and is 99% accurate in finding decay band cracks.
- Zero Radiation – Unlike traditional x-rays CariVu has no radiation. That is particularly beneficial for children, pregnant women, and others who are not comfortable with radiation that comes from traditional x-rays. Since there is zero radiation emitted, it can be used as often as needed.
