What is DEXIS CariVu?

This innovative tool allows dental professionals to detect caries, cracks, and fractures with 99% more accuracy. It's a compact and portable device that uses transillumination technology to help identify these issues. This technology makes tooth enamel appear transparent, allowing us to see through the tooth and examine carious lesion development.

What are Dental Caries?

Dental caries, commonly known as cavities or tooth decay, are caused by broken down tooth enamel, resulting in harmful bacteria that destroy the hard tissues of your tooth. While caries are one of the most common dental diseases, they’re also the most preventable – the best way to stop them is to have excellent oral hygiene.

Some of the common signs and symptoms of dental caries are:

  • Spontaneous tooth pain
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Staining on the tooth’s surface
  • Holes or pits in your teeth
