DEXIS CariVu™ Caries Detection Device | KaVo Kerr
DEXIS CariVu is the “no-dose” solution for detecting caries and cracks and displaying images in easy-to-read black & white. It uses absolutely zero ionizing radiation. Near-infrared transillumination technology allows you to see into a tooth like never before and offers a new diagnostic tool for patients when x-rays are difficult or unwanted.
CariVu is a portable caries detection device that uses transillumination technology to detect a range of carious lesions and cracks. CariVu straddles the tooth and bathes it in safe, near-infrared light. On the resulting images, enamel appears transparent while porous lesions absorb the light. Caries appear as dark areas and cracks become visible.
