Cat & Dog X-Ray is an Essential Part of Treatment

We need cat and dog x-ray to properly diagnose and treat dental disease and a multitude of other oral conditions. Radiographs give us the bigger picture regarding an animal’s dental health by revealing underlying damage that might otherwise be missed. A treatment’s success relies on the accuracy and clarity that digital dental radiology provides. Every patient we see for treatment receives full-mouth x-rays.

  • Periodontal disease in dogs and cats
  • Endodontic disease
  • Feline Tooth Resorption
  • Fractured teeth, trauma, maxillary or mandibular fractures
  • Dental abnormalities
  • Nasal cavity disease
  • Missing teeth
  • Dentigerous cysts (cysts that form around partially erupted or unerupted teeth)
  • Oral masses and tumors
  • Retained roots
  • Periapical abscesses
  • Genetic dental abnormalities
  • Cavities and root resorption
  • Abscessed teeth
  • Retained deciduous (baby) teeth
  • Dens invaginatus (a dental malformation in which the outer surface of the tooth appears to form an extra bump or cusp, into which the pulp may extend)
  • Malocclusions

Every Pet Deserves the Best

Dogs and cats with complex oral health issues due to injury, genetics, or disease benefit from the exceptional technology and the state-of-the-art care we provide. When standard pet dental x-rays prove insufficient, our veterinary dental specialists have additional tools, such as CT imaging to help find solutions to challenging problems.
