Cat and Dog Dental X-Rays in Boxborough
Dental radiography is one of the most important and common diagnostic imaging methods that we use here at Veterinary Dental Services in Boxborough. Cat and dog dental X-rays involve obtaining X-ray images of the teeth, mouth, and jaws, including below the gum line, where many dental problems are found. This process is completely painless and non-invasive, but anesthesia is necessary for proper positioning.
What Can Be Detected with Pet Dental X-rays
Dental X-rays are used to diagnose various types of dental disease often hidden below the gum line. We recommend X-rays for all of our patients as they often reveal dental problems that would otherwise be missed, such as:
- Missing teeth
- Retained tooth
- Tooth root abscesses
- Bone loss from gum disease
We also routinely X-ray fractured teeth, and patients with periodontal disease or tooth resorption as this helps to further characterize the extent of disease and guides our treatment.
As an AAHA-accredited practice, we meet the highest standards in veterinary dental medicine, so you can be confident that your pet will be well-cared for during their dental treatment here in Boxborough.
