CariVu™ Caries Detection
Small cavities and cracks in the tooth enamel can be difficult to detect, even with the help of x-ray technology. And sometimes, patients wish not to have x-rays taken altogether. DEXIS CariVu™ offers a safe, effective alternative. It uses special transillumination light technology to help us spot cavities and cracks, allowing your dentist to provide necessary restorative care before significant problems develop. With CariVu, we can actually see through your tooth. Lesions or caries appear as dark spots, just like with an x-ray -- but safely, without radiation exposure.
T-Scan® Novus™ Digital Occlusal Analysis
When your upper and lower jaw fit together the way they should, you are able to eat and speak with ease. But when something is off with their alignment, you may experience discomfort, headaches, or worn teeth as a result. The T-Scan Novus helps us analyze your bite to identify excessive force or contact as well as the interrelationship of your upper and lower bite surfaces. Using the T-Scan Novus, we are able to improve the way we treat malocclusion.
All over the body, our joints rub together as they function. This movement allows us to move our arms, legs, and the jaw. But when there’s an issue in the joint, lots of friction and vibration are created. Do you have a clicking, popping jaw? You probably have a problem with your TMJ, or the temporomandibular joint. The BioJVA helps us to identify the different types of vibration to determine just what’s going on in your jaw. BioJVA improves the outcomes of TMJ therapy.
Surface EMG: Bio EMG II
We have another state-of-the-art tool to help locate the source of facial pain and related discomfort. It is the Bio EMG II, a type of surface EMG (SEMG) that allows us to objectively measure the muscles in the head and neck -- when they act and react. It also lets your doctor test treatments before finalizing your treatment plan, for improved outcomes overall. These SEMG systems often catch lots of excess noise, as the dental office is filled with electrical signals that can show up on the results. But the Bio EMG II guarantees the highest noise-reduction system of any SEMG on the market.
