Many of us spend the majority of our lives giving to others, caring for others and providing for others. This can be a very rewarding way to live.

At West Lake Dental Care, we emphasize the importance of visiting our dental office at least twice per year to maintain and achieve optimal oral health. One of the main reasons we encourage you to see us is so that we can detect dental problems before they turn into serious concerns. Preventive dentistry is key to long-term oral health. However, while a physical exam can find noticeable signs of issues, some oral diseases are not visible to the naked eye. This is why we utilize dental x-rays.
Modern technology has reduced radiation levels to miniscule amounts. We utilize advanced, digital x-rays that use 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays. Digital x-rays help to magnify and enhance your teeth for better diagnosis of dental diseases or problems.
We are able to use a number of tools that will allow us to take a closer look at your teeth and surrounding structures with remarkable accuracy.
Once the x-ray is taken, an image of your teeth is placed into an imaging program and projected on a screen instantly for us to view. This helps to assist us in diagnosing issues that would otherwise be undetectable. Dr. Diana Visco can examine small areas of decay between teeth and under existing fillings. Also, digital x-rays can help detect bone loss due to periodontal disease, dental infections and abscesses. Your results are also easily stored for future use or can be sent over to a specialist immediately if needed.
We are proud to bring this modern technology to you. If you have put off dental x-rays because of the risk of radiation or you just didn’t have time for them, we encourage you to come in for an appointment and have digital x-rays taken. We can help you get your oral health back on track!
