We use state-of-the-art technology to detect cavities during their earliest stages.
It can be a challenge for young kids to brush their teeth well and practice other oral hygiene habits, even with the help of their parents. In addition, primary (baby) teeth can develop cavities faster than permanent (adult) teeth. For these reasons, young kids tend to be more prone to tooth decay. It’s important to identify cavities early enough that they don’t become too severe, and that is exactly what we can do for your child here at Smile Cove Pediatric Dental.
We use state-of-the-art technology to detect cavities during their earliest stages. This technology, called the Carivu Cavity detection system, uses near-infrared light to make dental enamel appear translucent and reveal developing cavities. The tool is noninvasive and painless, which is why it’s the perfect tool to use with young children. It doesn’t require the insertion of uncomfortable films in the mouth like traditional X-rays do. CariVu Cavity detection also offers real-time images of the tooth for the dentist or hygienist to view.
If you are interested in CariVu Cavity detection for your child, we can provide it at our office in Tampa, Florida. Our dentist, Dr. Ashley Tate, has years of experience working with children and using new technology to make their experience in the chair more comfortable. Our entire team is dedicated to your child’s health and comfort, so contact us today to make an appointment for your child or learn more about what we can do for you. Please let us know if you have questions.
