Innovative Technology

At Yummy Dental & Orthodontics for Kids, we take pride in bringing our patients the latest and greatest resources, techniques, products, and technology to make their experience at our Glenview and Chicago office a memorable one. We understand the potential dental concerns of our patients and strive to deliver the highest quality service for everyone who walks through our door. As a result, we do our best to offer the latest innovative technology and have multiple products available for additional comfort, insight, and education on our patient's smiles!

The technologies that we use are designed to make it convenient for both the staff and our patients to better diagnose the dental issue. With a more accurate examination, our doctors can provide a suitable and individualized treatment plan for each and every patient.

DEXIS™ CariVu™

CariVu-cavity-diagramDEXIS™ CariVu™ allows dentists and hygienists to see into your teeth like never before. It captures pictures for diagnostic reviews that can be shared with you on-screen. The exam is painless and simple! Flexible arms gently hug the tooth and bathe it in near-infrared light as the built-in camera captures live video and still images. CariVu™ can be safely used on every person as often as needed, and because it uses no X-rays, it’s especially beneficial for kids, pregnant women, and others who want to avoid ionizing radiation.

With this technology, we can see your teeth at different angles to determine if there are any cavities or decay. As a result, a potential cavity can be identified sooner in order to take more preventative measure and then monitor those changes closely over time. Especially in between teeth, CariVu™ can see the actual size and shape of the cavity, so the treatment is much more targeted. It’s also useful for discovering cracks in your teeth. Since the tooth can be viewed from multiple angles, it makes it easier to see the shape and extent of a fracture and aids in determining the best course of action.

These images are stored in your patient record and can be compared from visit to visit. They can also be shared with specialists when necessary.



Hate feeling numb after your dental appointment? We offer a product called OraVerse® for patients six years and older to rapidly reverse the lingering numbness of the lip and tongue from a local dental anesthetic. This will allow our patients to quickly bring back the ability to eat and drink normally, smile, and speak. If you would like to learn more about OraVerse®, please feel free to ask our friendly and caring staff for more information!
