X01067_1 (2)Here at Appell Dental Group, we are very excited to offer Carivu, the newest development in good dental health.

As always, we are dedicated to staying on top of the advances in the dental field. By doing this, we are able to offer Carivu for our patients to ensure that they have a healthy mouth!

X01067The Carivu is a portable device that allows us to diagnose caries (cavities), lesions, and cracks in your teeth. We often use it right along with radiographs to ensure a correct diagnosis. It helps us to determine if we can just monitor a suspicious spot or if we have to do something about it soon!

The Carivu uses near-infrared light to view your teeth. The enamel appears transparent so we are able to see inside of it. We can see the structure of the tooth and any carious lesions too!

Together with radiographs and an intra-oral photo, we can determine the best course of action to giving our patients a healthy mouth!

If you have any questions about Carivu or to schedule an appointment, feel free to contact us today at (847) 255-2121.
