Cavity Detection Made Easy: CariVu™ caries detection technology uses patented trans-illumination technology. It pictures caries (decay) from the top of the tooth so that Dr. Burman and our hygienists don’t miss recurrent and early decay.
The device uses near infrared (near-IR) light, which causes the enamel to appear translucent, but porous lesions look black because they trap the light and absorb it. This allows us to see completely through the layers of the tooth, which exposes its structure and detects the presence of carious lesions with exacting accuracy.
We use it to find decay and cracks that do not show on normal x-rays — even digital ones, and CariVu™ is the only diagnostic tool on the market with NO IONIZING RADIATION.
