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 

Our latest enhancements provide technology that is easy to use, delivers high-quality clinical imaging, and offers an amazingly simple workflow. Learn more about the new updates to CariVu 2.0 software in this short video.
