Dental Imaging

Digital X-rays

Throughout the past few decades, dental technology has seen a drastic advancement as the need for more precise diagnostic tools has increased. This includes the digitization of X-ray technology. Offering superior resolution with less radiation exposure, digital radiography at your Farmington Hills dentist is an excellent way to help diagnose oral problems. Digital X-rays not only use 90% less radiation than traditional film X-rays but are also much less time-consuming, making them one of the most important advancements in modern dentistry.

Intraoral Camera

An intraoral camera is a small video camera that takes an image of the outside of the gum or tooth. The intraoral camera resembles an oversized pen. While simultaneously viewing a monitor, the dentist inserts the camera into a patient's mouth and gently shifts it about so that images can be taken from a variety of angles.

iTero Dental Impressions

The iTero® Intraoral Scanner is a cutting edge imaging tool that allows doctors to take a 3D digital scan of a patient’s teeth and bite using a non-intrusive wand rather than a viscous impression material. This simple digital impression scanner can be used for veneers, crowns, bridges, surface inlays, onlays, implant abutments from single units to full arches and even modeling an Invisalign treatment. Patients are also able to instantly view high quality, clear “before” and simulated “after” images of their dental treatments on an in-office computer display.

KaVo DIAGNOdent Laser Cavity Finder

The KaVo DIAGNOdent™ laser is a revolutionary, ADA approved method for detecting cavities using sound instead of X-rays. The low-density KaVo laser is slowly swept across the enamel of the teeth and finds hidden decay in the same way a metal detector locates metal objects in the ground. When the laser pinpoints a cavity, it produces a sound. Thanks to this new technology, your dentist at Drakeshire Dental can discover unseen decay long before other conventional methods and provide treatment before larger problems develop. The procedure is quick, pain-free, and yields results with maximum efficiency.
