Digital Dental radiography  (x-ray) is a very important diagnostic tool used in our  practice.  

They allow the internal anatomy of the teeth, the roots  and the bone that surrounds the roots to be examined.

Dental x-rays can help with identification of the following conditions:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Endodontic disease
  • Feline Odontoclastic Resorptive Lesions
  • Trauma, maxillary or mandibular fractures, fractured teeth
  • Dental abnormalities
  • Preoperative, perioperative and post operative evaluations
  • Nasal cavity disease
  • Missing teethdigital_x_rays_sensor_screen.png
  • Dentigerous Cysts
  • Oral Masses or Tumors
  • Retained Roots
  • Periapical abscesses
  • Genetic dental abnormalities
  • Cavities and Root Resorption
  • Abscessed teeth
  • Permanent tooth count in puppies
  • Retained Deciduous teeth
Intra-oral radiographs are made using a small digital sensor placed inside the patient’s mouth, and provide superior quality for examination of individual teeth or sections of the jaws compared with standard-sized veterinary radiographs. Because veterinary patients will not cooperate when a radiograph or sensor is placed in the mouth, taking dental radiographs requires that the patient is anesthetized or sedated.

12_10dog_dental.jpgA veterinary Professional will make a recommendation regarding the dental x-rays needed by your pet.  A diagnostic plan of few radiographs of specific teeth to radiographs of all the teeth (“full-mouth radiographs”), is based on the reason for presentation of the patient and the results of initial visual examination of the mouth. It is common for a patient referred for one specific problem to have additional oral problems – these may only become apparent from full-mouth radiographs. Full-mouth radiographs also establish a base-line for future comparison.

The radiation risk to the patient from taking digital dental radiographs is minimal. Hoffman Animal Hospital has a digital imaging system, which significantly reduces the radiation exposure for the patient and veterinary staff.
