DEXIS CariVu™ - Caries Detection Device

Cavity Detection Without the X-Rays.

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.

By hugging the tooth and bathing it in safe, near-infrared light, 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.

What makes CariVu unique?

  • Uses transillumination technology that makes enamel appear transparent while porous lesions trap and absorb light
  • Allows the clinician to see through the tooth, exposing its structure and the actual structure of any carious lesions
  • CariVu images read like familiar X-ray images
  • Uses non-ionizing radiation which is ideal for children, pregnant women and patients who are X-ray averse
