State of the Art Dental Imaging System Improves Patient Care
This is a game changer in dentistry. I am both extremely excited to have this in our arsenal, and frightened that the technology wasn’t here sooner. How many cavities have we been missing??? Using NO RADIATION we can now look directly into teeth through near-infrared technology. The visibility the CariVu offers is literally mind-blowing.
Our team member Jill is featured in the picture, showing what a ‘normal’ (top of the line) digital radiograph shows me. I would look at that small spot on the x-ray and have to make a guess as to whether it needed a filling or could be watched. On the left is the same tooth taken with a CariVu. The dark spot is a fairly large cavity that needs to be addressed. Because of the improved imaging results provided by the CariVu, we know the location, shape, and depth of the decay before we even drill. Amazing! —Dr. Jeffery Patrician.
Radiation Free Dentistry Available NOW!
The CariVu system arrived at Boulder Dental Arts in October 2014 and is available for patients, free of charge, now! Boulder Dental Arts is among the first locations in the country to adopt this new technology.
How Does the CariVu Create More Accurate Images?
The CariVu uses near-infrared light to expose the structure of each individual tooth. CariVu’s transillumination technology makes the enamel appear transparent while exposing lesions with potent accuracy.
