Discover the modern technology that Dr. Mona Patel uses to provide comfortable and innovative dentistry. The DEXIS CariVu is the latest technology to assist dentists with diagnosing cavities and cracks in your teeth. The handheld device uses a safe, infrared-style light to make your tooth surface transparent, which reveals cavities taking shape. The images are similar in appearance to x-rays with the troublesome areas showing up as dark patches. This helps Dr. Mona Patel see the structure of the tooth and the size of the cavity or crack – thus helping her plan the best restoration.
CariVu uses transillumination technology (infrared-style) to show images of your teeth. However, unlike x-rays, they are and can be completed very quickly.
