Dental Radiographs

X-rays of the teeth are ordered for a complete evaluation your pet's teeth and the supporting bones. These X-rays help detect abnormalities that cannot be seen by the veterinarian.

There are several reasons why we would order a dental X-ray for your pet:

  • To identify problems such as tooth decay, damage to supporting bones, and dental injuries such as broken tooth
  • To find crowded or impacted teeth
  • To locate any abscesses, cysts, or oral tumors
  • To check on the size and formation of permanent teeth, especially in toy or small dog breeds
  • To develop a treatment plan for more complex dental concerns
  • Dental X-rays allow us to identify these problems early before any symptoms occur.
