Dental x-rays are needed to diagnose periodontal disease below the gumline.
X-rays are also taken to evaluate missing, discolored, supernumerary (extra), resorptive lesions and fractured teeth.
We utilize digital x-ray which is the newest technology in radiographic imaging. Traditional films take more time to develop, do not allow for enhancement of images, and required more radiation to produce an image. By utilizing digital x-rays we can reduce the time your pet is under anesthesia, reduce exposure to radiation and diagnose problems quicker than ever before.
