Dexis Cari-Vu is a compact, portable caries detection device that uses transillumination technology to identify decay that is on the biting surfaces and the surfaces in between the teeth. It also identifies all lesions and cracks.
By hugging the tooth and bathing it in a safe, near - infrared light, Cari-Vu makes the enamel appear transparent, while porous lesions trap and absorb the light.This unique caries detector allows Dr. Martone to see through the tooth exposing its structure and the actual structure of any decay or crack .
The best part about Cari-Vu is that it is RADIATION FREE! We at Westfield Dental are excited to introduce this new technology to our patient population and will continue to stay on the leading edge of products and technology .
