NEW! Dexis CariVu
Dexis CariVu allows Dr. Logeman, Dr. Cronley and our hygienists to see into your teeth like never before and capture pictures of them for diagnostic review and sharing right on-screen with you.
How does it work?
The exam is painless and simple. Flexible arms gently hug the tooth and bathe it in infrared light as the built-in camera captures live video and still images of your teeth.
What's so great about it?
CariVu can be safely used as often as needed, and because it uses no X-rays, it's especially beneficial for kids, pregnant women, and others who want to avoid ionizing radiation.
What are some of the uses for it?
CariVu can detect a potential cavity sooner, which can call for taking preventive measures early while monitoring it over time to see whether there's improvement or decline. CariVu is particularly good for finding a cavity between teeth, even in the early stages, since its actual size and shape can be seen, treatment can be more targeted.
A cracked tooth can be viewed from multiple angles to reveal the shape and extent of the fracture. This can aid in determining the best course of action.
What's a benefit of this system?
Images are stored in your patient record and can be compared from visit to visit. They can also be shared with specialists when necessary.
