Earlier we had discussed how dental disease can affect our furry friends and shared tips for at home brushing. This month we thought it would be fun to talk about dental radiographs, which here at Banded Peak we consider to be an important part of the dental procedure.
In a nutshell, dental X-Ray allow us to see the entire tooth (above & below the gum line) to help identify any ‘hidden’ concerns.
What maybe hidden from plain view – you ask? Well - several things!
For example there can be root reabsorption/destruction, bone loss/pockets below the gum line, caries (also known as cavities) and traumas (think tooth fractures). These issues can be very painful for your best friend, but the good news is that they can be easily identified during their dental procedure here at BVPH with our digital dental X-Ray equipment.
