Caries Detection Device
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, pregnant women, and those unwilling or unable to undergo a traditional dental X-ray.
Catching cavities early makes all the difference!
Most tooth decay begins in the tiny cracks and grooves of your tooth's surface. CariVu’s illuminating technology can help your dentist:
- Detect tooth decay as early as possible
- Eliminate or reduce the number of costly treatments that you may need in the future
- Treat small problems before they become serious dental issues
- Ensure you achieve a lifetime of oral health safely and comfortably

“Dr. Worrel and his team are great! I had two fillings done yesterday. I had a broken tooth and a cavity. I didnt need local anesthesia because they used an awesome technology that used a laser to numb my tooth! Dr. Worrel was very kind and asked me if i had any discomfort throughout the procedure.”
“Very welcoming, friendly, and informative. Had a very good experience and I'm definitely going to refer my friends and family here. The people here are awesome!!! I'd recommend everyone to go check them out :)”
“Dr. Worrell and his staff are the most attentive and most caring of any dental office we've ever been to, EVER! My wife, Zee and I have been receiving treatments for the last couple of year involving restorations, crowns & implants and he and his fabulous team could not have been more considerate and more flexible with our ever evolving treatment plans. He's gentle and his bedside manners are most genuine and most compassionate. We highly recommend this office for all your dentistry needs.”
