Veterinary Dental Radiographs (X-rays)

Dental radiology is an important tool in diagnosing and treating oral and dental disease in pets. Without veterinary dental radiographs, dental problems (infections) can be missed. Dental Radiographs help aid in diagnosis, treatment planning, monitoring treatment and post operative treatment success.

Vet Dental X-ray & equipment - Houston Vet Dentist

Advanced radiography equipment at our facility includes digital veterinary dental x-rays.

Dental radiographs are used to view the dental tissues and supporting structures for the animal’s teeth. They are also used to identify problems with the crowns and roots of the teeth, as well as the jaw bones, nasal cavity and soft tissues of the mouth. They are useful for evaluating the crown and roots of teeth as well as the supporting bone and soft tissue.

Dental radiographs are an important part of dental and oral examination because they can help identify the following conditions that are found in dogs, cats and other animals:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Endodontic disease
  • Feline Odontoclastic Resorptive Lesions
  • Trauma, maxillary or mandibular fractures, fractured teeth
  • Dental abnormalities

  • Periapical abscesses
  • Genetic dental abnormalities
  • Cavities and Root Resorption
