Using CariVu cavity detection technology, Doctors Shad, Richard, and Clive Ingram can quickly detect and treat cavities before they cause any serious damage to your teeth or oral health. Call now to learn about this innovative new cavity detection method and schedule your next appointment!
CariVu cavity detection technology detects cavities through the use of near-infrared light. This light causes the natural tooth to appear transparent and the cavities to appear dark, similar to X-rays. The tips used for cavity detection are flexible, comfortable, and easy for our team to sanitize and disinfect.
This patented light source and electronics system is housed in a sleek, lightweight handpiece, and high-quality images are transmitted directly to our DEXIS software. These images can then be displayed side-by-side with X-rays and other images of your smile to help your dentist find problems faster and more accurately.
CariVu technology is quick and comfortable to use. It takes only a few seconds to capture high-quality images of your teeth! Additionally, this system does not expose you to radiation, making it extremely safe and a great option for children, pregnant women, and patients who are averse to X-rays.
