An Exciting New Technology Improves the Accuracy, Ease and Safety of Cavity Detection

Posted on May 11th, 2016

One aspect of our Phoenixville dental practice in which we take exceptional pride is our commitment to cutting-edge dental technology. By offering our patients the best that dentistry has to offer, we’re able to provide state-of-the-art dental treatment, while always maintaining focus on patient comfort and care. One of our latest technological improvements, the Dexis CariVu Cavity Detection Device, promises to revolutionize the way we locate and treat cavities.

What’s so special about it?

Cavities must be positively identified before they can be removed and replaced with a dental filling. For decades, dentists have relied on a combination of visual examination and X-ray imaging to detect cavities. The CariVu Cavity Detection Device is different. It uses a patented transillumination technology that enables me to look right through the structure of the tooth and identify cavities with amazing precision.

CariVu slips over a tooth and envelops it with safe light in the near-infrared spectrum. Your tooth enamel reflects the light back to the device’s imaging lens, while decayed areas absorb the light. When combined with regular dental check-ups. CariVu enables us to identify potential issues before they have a chance to progress.

What are the benefits to you, the patient?

THe CariVu Cavity Detection Device is an excellent imaging alternative for patients who do not wish to undergo X-ray photography. Though the amount of radiation exposure a patient receives in a typical X-ray is minimal – similar to what one experiences in a cross-country commercial flight; some patients remain cautious. Because CariVu relies upon near-infrared wavelengths of light, there are no X-rays to worry about.

Advantages of Dexis CariVu technology include:

  • No exposure to X-ray radiation
  • Comfortable, instantaneous imaging
  • Crisp and clear clinical images
  • Fast and simple cavity detection

We’re pleased to be able to offer this impressive technology to our patients.

The best way to prevent cavities is to brush and floss twice daily and visit your dentist at least twice a year for a full exam and checkup. If it’s time for your next cleaning, please contact us. We serve patients in Phoenixville, PA and throughout Phoenixville, Valley Forge, and surrounding areas.
