What makes CariVu unique? 

Uses transillumination technology that makes enamel appear transparent while porous lesions trap and absorb light. This allows the clinician to see through the tooth, exposing its structure and the actual structure of any carious lesions. CariVu uses non-ionizing radiation which is ideal for children, pregnant women and patients who are X-ray averse

By hugging the tooth and bathing it in safe, near-infrared light, CariVu’s transillumination technology makes the enamel appear transparent while porous lesions trap and absorb the light. This unique caries detector allows the clinician to see through the tooth exposing its structure and the actual structure of any carious lesions with very high accuracy.
