Dexis CariVu -How it Compares

Dexis CariVuAbout 15 years ago, when I started a sales job in the Dental industry with Henry Schein, there was a unit called the DIFOTI It was a caries detection system that we were trying to sell. This technology was based on transillumination. The problem was, it was priced around $30,000. It wasn’t very practical for most dentist at that time. Eventually this product disappeared from our listing of products. Dexis working their European Partners, Kavo, has re-engineered a portable caries detection camera-like device that uses a patented transillumination technology. Dexis has yet again taken a technology and made it better and more ergonomic. What’s so cool about this product is, not only can it identify occlusal lesions, but also interproximal and recurrent caries and cracks. Just think of all the patients that refuse x-rays or are  not due for their annual bitewings. Now, you can scan the patient in a few minutes find questionable area’s and offer your patient a more comprehensive view of their oral health.  If your an existing Dexis customer with the software the great news is you can get this technology for $6,995.

Check out this video below.

There are a number of systems on the market like Acteon’s Sopro Life, Air Techniques Spectra and Kavo’s Diagodent. All of these are nice as an adjunct to film. The problem is with flourescent imaging technologies there is a lot that is left to interpretation. Lots of variables like has the tooth been cleaned of all bacteria and trying to determine what the colors actually means. With transillumination, the caries appear as dark area’s due to the light being trapped by the porous nature of the lesion.
