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 continues the long DEXIS tradition of providing intuitive, easy-to-use diagnostic tools for the dental community.
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 development 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
CariVu is compatible with DEXvoice™, an add-on module to the DEXIS imaging software that enables voice activation – Hands Free Workflow.
Early Detection for Caries Prevention
CariVu images read like familiar X-ray images — lesions will appear as dark areas. Since transillumination can show lesions in the beginning stages, using CariVu during routine prophylaxis can aid the dental practitioner in identifying questionable areas early on and decide on a course of preventive care.
CariVu Time Comparison
Easy to Use for Any Practitioner
CariVu provides an edge over fluorescent imaging technologies in that there is no need to clean the tooth of bacteria, calibrate the device or become versed in the meaning of multiple color codes or numeric indicators. The device also comes with two tip sizes, one large size for adults and one small size for children, which are easy to attach and remove.
Carivu the Ultimate Companion Tool
DEXIS Software Integration Makes the CariVu Workflow Simple
CariVu seamlessly integrates with the DEXIS Software, making it easy to compare the CariVu image in the current session with its historical and intraoral X-ray and camera counterparts. When used together, a radiograph, a transilluminated image, and an intraoral photo, CariVu is your ultimate companion tool for caries detection, providing a comprehensive picture of the health of a patient’s tooth.
