Our DEXIS digital X-ray sensor, intraoral camera and CariVu are ultimate companion tools for cavity detection.

When we identify a suspicious area on a radiograph — especially possible decay in between the teeth, which can be more difficult to detect — our “second opinion” can be a trans-illuminated image that reveals to us the extent of the condition and helps us determine whether it needs monitoring over time or requires immediate treatment.

Since transillumination can show lesions in the beginning stages, using CariVu during routine teeth cleanings aids our team in identifying questionable areas early on so that we can provide you with the best course of preventive care for your individual and specific needs.

When used together, a radiograph, a transilluminated image and an intra-oral photo provide a comprehensive picture of the health of your teeth.
