At Midtown Dental, our dentist strives to detect and diagnose dental problems at the earliest possible stage, which allows us to provide the treatment you need as soon as we can. One of the tools we use to do this is the DEXIS® CariVu™ caries detection device. This advanced tool is a compact, portable cavity detection device that uses patented transillumination technology to help Dr. R. Nab identify cracks and cavities in teeth.
The DEXIS CariVu device is a fast, painless way for us to thoroughly examine your smile. The device shines a safe, near-infrared light on your teeth, making the enamel appear transparent while highlighting areas that are decayed or cracked as dark areas. This helps us to identify areas that need treatment at the earliest possible stage, enabling us to provide you with conservative care before the problem becomes more serious and more painful.
You may notice our team using the DEXIS CariVu caries detection device to confirm the findings we see in X-rays of your teeth. This helps us determine whether your smile would benefit from a restoration.
