Dental Radiography

Oral health is an important part of your pet’s health and we are committed to providing comprehensive dental care for your pets and our dental X-ray services play a crucial role in achieving optimal oral health. We have invested in state-of-the-art dental X-ray equipment which allows us to examine the internal structures of your pet’s teeth, supporting accurate diagnoses and guiding appropriate treatment plans. Here is an overview of our dental X-ray services:

  1. Advanced Dental Imaging: Our clinic is equipped with advanced dental X-ray technology specifically designed for veterinary dentistry. This technology enables us to capture detailed X-ray images of your pet’s teeth, gums, and underlying structures. These images provide a comprehensive view of dental health that is not visible during a regular oral examination.

  2. Early Detection of Dental Problems: Dental X-rays allow us to detect dental issues that may not be apparent during a visual examination alone. This includes evaluating the roots, tooth structure, and surrounding bone for signs of periodontal disease, tooth decay, abscesses, fractured teeth, or other dental abnormalities. Early detection allows for prompt intervention and appropriate treatment.

  3. Accurate Diagnosis and Treatment Planning: Dental X-rays provide our team with detailed information necessary for accurate diagnoses and effective treatment planning. The images help determine the extent of dental disease, identify specific problem areas, and guide the selection of appropriate treatment options. This ensures that your pet receives targeted and comprehensive dental care.

  4. Evaluation of Tooth Root Health: Dental X-rays allow us to assess the health of tooth roots, which are critical for overall dental stability. By examining the roots, we can identify root resorption, abscesses, or other conditions that may necessitate extraction or further intervention. This information guides our decisions in preserving dental health and maintaining your pet’s comfort.

  5. Assessment of Hidden Dental Structures: Dental X-rays help evaluate dental structures that are not visible to the naked eye, such as tooth roots, periodontal ligaments, and alveolar bone. This comprehensive assessment ensures a thorough evaluation of your pet’s dental health and enables us to provide targeted treatments to address any underlying issues.

  6. Enhanced Treatment Precision and Safety: Dental X-rays aid in precise treatment execution, allowing us to target specific areas accurately. This precision enhances treatment outcomes and reduces the risk of complications. Additionally, dental X-rays help us identify any potential complications or contraindications before dental procedures, ensuring the safety and well-being of your pet.

  7. Client Education and Communication: We believe in the importance of client education and communication. Our veterinarians will utilise dental X-rays as visual aids to explain your pet’s dental health, discuss treatment options, and provide recommendations for at-home dental care. This comprehensive understanding empowers you to make informed decisions about your pet’s oral health.

  8. Continued Monitoring and Follow-up: Dental X-rays serve as a valuable baseline for future dental evaluations. By establishing a dental record, we can monitor changes in your pet’s dental health over time, track treatment effectiveness, and provide appropriate follow-up care. Regular dental X-rays ensure a proactive approach to long-term dental health.
