CariVu by Dexis
CariVu by Dexis is also known as Radiation free* cavity detection. East Ridge is proud to offer this exciting new technology to our patients! CariVu is a hand held instrument, similar in size to an electric toothbrush. It gently “hugs” the tooth and bathes it in safe, near infrared light. CariVu’s transillumination technology makes enamel appear transparent while areas of decay and lesions trap and absorb the light. This allows the clinician to see through the tooth exposing its structure and the actual structure of any carious lesions (cavities) with very high accuracy.
Digital Dental X-rays
Digital x-rays use 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays and are very accurate. Images are able to be viewed in just seconds and allow for effective diagnosis of any area of concern.
See for yourself where treatment is needed! Each patient has a screen in the treatment room that allows them to view all x-rays and intraoral pictures that we take.
