Dental radiographs are an important tool used to help diagnose dental problems in our furry friends. Radiographs allow us to see inside your pet's mouth and examine below the gum line. The process is quick and painless and provides valuable information about any hidden dental concerns your pet may be experiencing.
Radiographs allow us to build a more complete picture of your pet's dental health, which we couldn't see on even the most thorough oral exam. The most common issues found on dental radiographs are resorption (tooth decay), below-gumline fractures, bone loss and pockets of infection.
Overall, dental radiographs are an essential tool when it comes to diagnosing and treating dental disorders. They allow us to get a clear picture of what's happening inside the mouth, which can lead to more accurate diagnoses and better treatment outcomes.
If your pet is showing signs of dental problems, such as bad breath, swollen gums or difficulty eating, be sure to talk to us about the benefits of thorough dental exams.
