Permanent link  Digital Dental Imaging Technology at CDS '14


One of the big trends we’re seeing here at the 149th CDS Midwinter Meeting is innovation in digital dental imaging technology. The blogging team saw a quick demonstration of the latest in portable caries detection on the exhibition floor. With DEXIS CariVu™, Dentists can use the handpiece to ‘hug’ the tooth, envelop the tooth in near-infrared light, and render the enamel transparent so dentists can see the tooth’s structure clearly. Check it out at booth 2419 and see the difference between intraoral x-rays and fluorescent imaging. What kinds of new technologies are you using at your practices?
