CariVu Digital Imaging
When it comes to diagnosing problems within your smile, Precision Digital Dentistry uses the most advanced digital technology available. We proudly offer the CariVu Digital Imaging system to our patients in Bridgewater. This innovative technology is a precise, comfortable and portable imaging system that diagnoses cavities and cracks in teeth. With the remarkable accuracy of CariVu and its easy-use, it is a win-win solution for both patient and dentist. In fact, CariVu Digital Imaging allows Dr. Ma to diagnose and treat problems at their earliest stage, which means you can take advantage of more conservative and cost-effective treatment options to restore your smile.
Dental X-Rays for Discovering Cracks in Teeth
DEXIS CariVu is a compact and portable detection device that uses patented transillumination technology to expose cavities and cracks in teeth. The CariVu system works by projecting images that look similar to x-rays, but there is no prep involved and the patient can remain comfortable in the dental chair the entire time. In fact, CariVu is ideal for patients who have a difficult time getting traditional x-rays.
This unique device uses near-infrared light to reveal areas of tooth decay and/or cracks on all surfaces of the tooth. Compared to other cavity detection systems that rely on fluorescent reactions and only indicate the presence of decay, the CariVu allows Dr. Ma to gain a more accurate view of the actual lesion’s shape and size. If an area of tooth decay or tooth crack is revealed during your exam, you can trust that Dr. Ma is qualified and equipped to restore it. We offer a full range of restorative and cosmetic dental services to ensure that you leave with a confident smile.
At Precision Digital Dentistry, we consistently pursue ways to improve patient experience as well as patient outcomes at our Bridgewater practice. The CariVu Digital Imaging unit is just one way we accomplish this. To learn more about how modern dentistry can improve your dental visit, contact our office today.
