Radiation-Free Cavity Screenings

Radiation Free Cavity Screening

Lumia Dental always strives to be at the forefront of dental technology. We invest in your comfort and safety wherever and whenever possible.

We are excited to feature radiation-free screenings for cavities and tooth fractures. This is especially important for patients who cannot tolerate x-rays well, pediatric patients, pregnant patients, special needs patients, and for patients who are concerned about radiation (e.g. recent history of radiation therapy). This very small instrument, called CariVu, is essentially a camera that uses a very bright light to “transilluminate” the tooth. Tooth enamel appears transparent; anything that is porous (e.g. a cavity or a fracture) traps the light and appears dark. It is that simple!
