What do you say to patients who have concerns about dental x-rays?
Digital radiography is the latest way to take and evaluate x-rays. With digital x-rays, less radiation is needed to produce high-quality images. These images can then be evaluated by the dentists at West Park Smiles on a large flat-screen monitor. This allows for easier detection of any problems. With such a large image, it is also easier for patients to see and understand what is happening with their teeth.
We have gone a step further and are using the latest in digital equipment where the need for any sensor inside your mouth is rarely needed. Most patients would testify that the worst part of a tooth cleaning visit is having the xrays taken. It can be especially painful to those with small mouths and often gouging and cutting under the tongue. So our dentists have made sure that their equipment can make that pain a thing of the past!
Come in and see how easy it is to have an X-ray taken. Children will think the machine is cool. Adults will appreciate the ease. The staff at West Park Dental likes treating patients gently.

Do you find yourself waking at night gasping for breath? Are you exhausted all day long because you just can't get a good night's sleep?
'Apnea' is a Greek word meaning "without breath"; people who have apnea literally stop breathing in their sleep. A cessation of breath lasting for 10 seconds in adults, or 2 and 1/2 breath cycles in a child, is the clinical definition of sleep apnea.
X-rays are used for diagnostic purposes, and to protect the patient from oral health problems that could arise—or are currently present—which would not be discovered without the use of this important diagnostic tool.
