Hygiene diagnodentIt is always important to detect cavities as early as possible, this is why we at Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry use a DIAGNOdent to detect them. Cavities can hide in the surface of a tooth or inside biting or occlusal surfaces, detecting them early can be challenging. DIAGNOdent is a revolutionary way which allow us to detect and find cavities holistically. DIAGNOdent uses a laser diode to inspect the patient’s teeth. The light-emitting device is shined on the teeth and then gives a digital readout the dentist is able to use to detect decay. In fact, the DIAGNOdent laser is able to identify the tiniest bit of tooth decay before it becomes a major problem. Detecting decay early means that fillings can be shallower and simpler and more of the tooth structure can be preserved. And, because DIAGNOdent uses only light energy, not x-rays, it’s safe to use at each office visit.

A safer way to detect cavities

The DEXIS CariVu uses absolutely zero ionizing radiation. Near-infrared transillumination technology allows you to see into a tooth like never before and offers a new diagnostic tool for patients, this is an alternative to x-rays. This tool allow us to detect and treat cavities in a very holistic way. We use it to detect cavities and cracks in between the teeth.

What makes CariVu unique?

  • Uses transillumination technology that makes enamel appear transparent while porous lesions trap and absorb light
  • Allows the clinician to see through the tooth, exposing its structure and the actual structure of any carious lesions
  • CariVu images read like familiar X-ray images
