As part of last month's look at the caries detection category, DPR asked DEXIS to show us how their new device - the CariVu - sets itself apart.   Scanning with the CariVu is simple and fast. The sleek handpiece maneuvers easily throughout the mouth. CariVu provides clear transilluminated clinical images on which it is very easy to see decay as darkened areas in the lighter surrounding tooth structure. The device can be used to view the interproximal and occlusal surfaces. This allows the dental professional to locate interproximal and occlusal caries and cracks around existing restorations and on non-restored teeth without the use of ionizing radiation.    Watch the video below to learn how to diagnose caries using the CariVu in a few simple steps:


DEXIS CariVu is a portable caries detection device that uses patented transillumination technology to support the identification of occlusal, interproximal and recurrent carious lesions and cracks. CariVu hugs the tooth and bathes it in safe, near-infrared light. On the resulting images, enamel appears transparent while porous lesions trap and absorb the light and appear as dark areas. This allows the clinician to see through the tooth exposing its structure and the actual shape and size of any carious lesions with very high accuracy.   For more information about the CariVu caries detection device, call DEXIS at 1-888-883-3947 or head to
