Digital Dental Radiology
Insight into underlying issues.
Digital dental radiographs (x-rays) are a necessary part of evaluating the health of a cat’s teeth, and are performed during every dental procedure. Without dental radiographs, significant dental issues are missed in up to 75% of cases. After obtaining the dental radiographs, we are able to make recommendations to make the most successful treatment plan.
Thanks to digital x-rays, we can evaluate every cat for:
Feline Odontoclastic Resorptive Lesions (FORLs)
Bony changes to the bottom jaw (mandible) or top jaw (maxilla)
Early changes to the teeth before they become a painful problem
Dental radiographs can also reveal other problems lurking beneath the gums, such as foreign objects, cysts, and even tumors.
If your pet is experiencing discomfort or pain, give us a call at (703) 723-9940 or request an appointment online.
