Digital radiography provides x-ray images without the use of conventional film. This allows for the highest-quality images, while providing the lowest possible exposure of radiation to your pet.

Digital Dental X-rays Help Us Assess Your Pet's Oral Health

At Village Veterinary Hospital, we always provide a comprehensive oral health assessment and treatment plan for pets when their teeth are cleaned. Digital dental x-rays with periodontal probing helps with our assessments. In fact, two thirds of our pets' teeth are under the gingiva (gums) and are not visible.

digital pet dental x rays catDigital dental radiographs allow assessment of:

  • the teeth (fractures or internal disease)
  • the surrounding soft tissues (periodontal disease, stomatitis, cysts, draining tracks, facial swellings, fistulas or tumors)
  • the joints (TMJ or mandibular symphysis)
  • the bone (jaw fractures)

X-rays allow us to find problems that need attention. Studies have shown that without dental x-rays, significant problems are missed in up to 75% of pets.

We always diagnose first before creating a treatment plan for each patient. Digital dental x-rays will help us do that by replacing a guess with a diagnosis, and allowing for the correct treatment to be optimally performed.
