Dental X-ray

Dental x-rays in dogs and cats are similar to those taken in humans. A handheld x-ray machine, using small amounts of radiation, is used to see the inside of your pet’s teeth and those areas below the gum line that are hidden from view.

It is not always obvious from the outside if your pet’s tooth is diseased, so in many cases, dental x-rays are the only way for our vets to know that your pet has a serious dental problem. Once the level of dental disease is identified, our vets can treat the problem, relieving your pet of pain and discomfort.
