Public awareness of Dental care for Veterinary patients continues to grow. There is now a huge opportunity to improve the standard of Veterinary Dental Care provided by routine practice. Integrating higher levels of Veterinary Dental Care into a GP practice takes time and a certain level of commitment on the part of practice owners, but the rewards in better patient care, better client retention, and financial rewards can be significant.
So why use X-Ray?
Dental X-rays allow us to see beneath the gumline and diagnose problems .The portion of the tooth we can see is called the crown, but up to 75% of your pet’s tooth structure is hidden under the gumline, so we cannot see the crown interior, the roots, the jawbone, or the periodontal ligament that holds the tooth in place. Since so much of the tooth is not visible, we cannot know what issues lurk beneath the surface. Without Veterinary Dental X-rays, most oral diseases go undiagnosed, causing many pets to suffer in silence with a painful mouth. Taking digital dental X-rays on every patient means we can investigate the hidden tooth structure and repair any problems. Common issues we find with the benefit of X-rays include:
Retained root fragments
Broken tooth fragments
Oral tumors with bone involvement
While some of these dental problems can be seen during an oral exam, most cannot, leaving your pet to suffer needlessly, because we have the tools to diagnose and treat issues.
