Clinton Parkway Animal Hospital offers specially designed veterinary digital dental radiographs, or X-rays, as part of our dentistry services. Digital dental radiography is an important tool in assessing the health of your pet's mouth because early detection is key to maintaining your pet's overall health and well-being.
Radiography is critical for the accurate evaluation of periodontal disease, as 60% of the disease is hidden below the gum line. The location of tooth root infections, the extent of periodontal bone loss and the identification of bone cysts and tumors can all be identified using dental X-rays. With this knowledge, we can help you make the best treatment decisions for your pet.
Digital dental X-rays can reveal:
- Periodontal Disease
- Broken and Discolored Teeth
- Suborbital Swellings
- Nasal Cavity Disease
- Retained Teeth
Digital dental X-rays can be enhanced and magnified, allowing a much better assessment of tooth structure compared to conventional dental X-rays. Digital radiographs provide images almost instantaneously, reducing the amount of time your pet spends under anesthesia. Digital radiographs also result in less radiation exposure to your pet.
Make digital dental radiography an important part of your pet's healthcare routine!
