Many patients who come in for routine dental cleanings also have additional oral problems, many of which can be painful. Taking oral xrays allows our veterinarians to see the condition of the teeth below the gumline, where problems often exist. Our veterinarians can view the anatomy of the tooth, the roots and the bones that surround the roots. Many oral health problems cannot be seen with the naked eye. The following problems are most frequently diagnosed through dental xrays.
- Tooth root abscesses
- Retained decidious teeth (baby teeth)
- Issues involving the jaw bone
- Resorptive lesions (holes and erosion in the surface of the teeth most commonly found in cats)
