~ Eliminate unnecessary radiation from your next dental checkup! ~


Accurate cavity detection without the radiation

Attention, all people who don’t want or have difficulties with taking dental x-rays. We have a brand new device that detects dental cavities without the use of any ‘radiation’ at all! For the first time, *an x-ray-free method of detecting tooth decay and a range of carious lesions and cracks is available as a safe alternative to conventional x-ray imagery. It is called CariVu.

It is especially good for the following:

  • Children or adults who don’t want extra radiation from X-rays.
  • Children who can’t tolerate X-ray film or holders in their mouth.
  • People who have had cancer or been irradiated.
  • People who are challenged in anyway.
  • Adults who can’t open their mouth open wide enough for various reasons to get film and holder in their mouth.
  • People who have a hard time staying still for x-rays.

In addition to this new service we offer a wide range of dentistry from highly esthetic concerns, to implant restoration, to simple restorations like tooth colored composites.

Be served in a warm and inviting office looking office with very warm and caring longtime staff. Also, emergencies are seen the same day if possible.

*CariVu is not a detection method for all cavity-detecting situations, but is a great alternative to x-rays in many cases.

CariVu utilizes a hand-held wand that is able to shine bright light directly into the tooth. A digital camera on the unit sends data to our computer so we can put it up on the monitor.

In the image, healthy tooth enamel shows off its translucency and appears as a pale ghost, but damaged or decayed enamel is a dark color, showing off as a darker grey or black. This technology can be used in your routine dental checkup to examine concerning but indistinct findings on your x-rays.

CariVu literally shines a light on diagnostic problems that have plagued dentists for years. How can we detect cavities and damage to the tooth in areas we cannot see, let alone touch? CariVu brings the entire volume of the tooth into view, allowing us to more accurately diagnose tooth damage than ever before.

CariVu allows us to:

  • See lesions inside the tooth
  • Illuminate damage that exists between teeth
  • Immediately capture useful images of the tooth
  • Image without radiation
  • Get additional views of suspected damage
  • Catch small lesions in hard-to-see places
  • Be sure treatment is necessary before work begins

CariVu is an ideal complement to diagnostic x-rays. With this new technology, we can ensure nothing is overlooked during your routine exams. For more information, please contact our office.
