CariVu Device

CariVu - Caries Detection Device

DEXIS™ CariVu™ is a compact, portable caries detection device that uses patented transillumination technology to support the identification of occlusal, interproximal and recurrent carious lesions and cracks.

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
  • Uses non-ionizing radiation which is ideal for children, pregnant women and patients who are X-ray averse

What's new with CariVu 2.0? 

Fresh User Experience - The interface has been fully redesigned with a sleek modern look and further intuitive, streamlined functionality. 

Quick Capture - It takes only a one-second squeeze of the ring to freeze and save images into the patient record.  

Same-Tooth Comparison Aid - For easier diagnostic comparison and monitoring changes over time, the software auto-draws an outline of a prior image of the same tooth. 

On-screen Acquisition Guidance - An on-screen indicator provides guidance on whether the lens should be closer or further away to achieve the clearest image results in the shortest time. 

5-Second Video Capture - A short video clip can now be captured by rocking the device around the tooth. This provides a more complete visual diagnosis when exploring lesions.

Indications for use for CariVu are detection of: smooth surface caries, occlusal carries, proximal caries, initial caries, secondary caries, and cracks. Proximal dentin lesions represented in CariVu images correlate to the actual condition in the tooth with 99% accuracy. DX 001930 REV A
