Early Cavity Detection
Dr. Filler and her team are now using a system called Dexis CariVu™, a brilliant new approach in early cavity detection. This advanced system allows Dr. Filler and her team to detect cavities earlier, thus allowing for less of your natural tooth structure from being destroyed. The system identifies lesions, cracks and cavities that to the eye in some cases cannot be seen.
By hugging the tooth and bathing it in safe, near-infrared light, Dexis CariVu's™ transillumination technology makes the enamel appear transparent while porous lesions trap and absorb the light. This unique cavity detector allows Dr. Filler to see through the tooth exposing its structure and the actual structure of any cavities or problems with very high accuracy. When used together with an x-ray and an intra-oral photo, the cavity detection system provides a comprehensive picture of the health of your tooth.
If you are hesitant to have X-rays taken, Dexis CariVu™ is a great alternative diagnostic method.
If you have any questions about the Dexis CariVu™ early cavity detection system, please speak with one of our team members today.
