The Benefit of DEXIS CariVu

Ever wonder what the wand-like tool does at the clinic?  It is the DEXIS CariVu, a detection device that helps Dr. Sunny Tatra and the team to identify tooth decay early and effectively.  Dr. Sunny Tatra and the team continue to be committed to providing clients with modern technology and equipment in order to create the best dental service experience.

The device uses near-infrared light to detect tooth decay by making the teeth enamel appear transparent.  Unlike fluorescent imaging technologies, the CariVu does not require teeth cleaning, device calibration or complex measurement metrics, resulting in a more efficient and streamlined process and experience for both Dr. Sunny Tatra and his clients.  Learn about how the CariVu and other technology at the clinic can help make appointments more engaging for kids and adults alike.

 

The Carivu emits zero radiation and can easily detect a variety of decay, including: occlusal caries, interproximal caries, cracks, secondary caries and recurrent caries.  To help prevent cavities altogether, practice healthy eating habits even during the summer!
