At MG Dentistry we are constantly evolving to keep up the pace with advancing technology. One of the newest technologies in the dental field is the CariVu which allows us to provide more accurate diagnosis of cavities, particularly “in-between” teeth cavities which traditionally are harder to capture.
CariVu uses patented transillumination technology to identify caries (cavities) and cracks on the surface of your teeth, as well as in the hard-to-see areas between your teeth. Using safe, near infrared light, CariVu allows your doctor an almost transparent view of your teeth in order to see structural anomalies and carious lesions. The images look like traditional X-rays and provide similar diagnostic information, but CariVu does so without the use of radiation, making it ideal for children and pregnant women.
Most tooth decay begins in the tiny cracks and grooves of your tooth’s surface. CariVu’s illuminating technology can help your dentist:
"I've made great friends with the staff. They are very pleasant, kind, and always treat me very well."
"They are very professional. If you have an appointment, they're always on time. You're never waiting, they never cancel your appointment."
"MG Dentistry goes above and beyond to make sure that their patients are getting first class care from start to finish."
