Digital Dental X-Rays
The Pet Vet on Patton Animal Hospital is now offering digital dental x-rays to help our doctors assess oral problems faster than before. These detailed images of bones and teeth can reveal disease, abnormalities, fractures, root exposure, and bone loss near or under the gum line. Some of these problems cannot be detected with a standard oral exam or can be easily missed.
Because many pets with an oral problem may not show signs of pain, a dental x-ray can help a doctor detect and treat problem areas before they become painful and inflamed or lead to more severe health issues. Dental x-rays taken before a procedure can also decrease surgery time by aiding in the quick identification of problematic areas. Call the Pet Vet on Patton today to schedule an appointment to discuss your pet’s oral health!
