Decay can be insidious and hide in places a regular exam or X-ray may miss; however, with advent of DEXIS® CariVu cavity and crack detection, we can discover these issues much easier and with more accuracy. To learn more about this technology, please call our dental team at 661-942-1179.
At AV Dental Wellness Group, we strive to ensure we identify dental issues and design a plan to fix them, so you can get back to living! With this system, we can take care of small issues, so further work may not be required, which saves time and cost.
The DEXIS CariVu caries detection device exposes tooth structure to a digital sensor, a unique system that trans-illuminates a tooth with light. It can detect any internal caries with very high accuracy, which results in detection that can be seen similarly to that of an X-ray, with dark color displaying the decay. We feel this visual image will better inform our patients on their oral health.
Caries, or what many know as cavities, can creep up without much notice. Sometimes patients can feel cavities in their teeth once they have become bothersome when eating. By then, it may require getting a restoration, so to prevent more extensive treatment, we ask that you contact our office to make an appointment with our dentist for exams and X-rays.
