Dental X-rays for Animals?
This allows analysis of teeth roots which allows a decision to be made if the tooth requires extraction or not, was an extraction completely successful or is further surgery needed. Extractions are traumatic and if a tooth is healthy, should not be done. The only way to know for certain is with dental films (just like human dentistry). Ask your veterinary team about dental x-rays whenever your pet is undergoing a dentistry or anesthesia. This is a wonderful, low cost diagnostic tool that hopefully will lower anesthetic time, unnecessary surgery or allow a missed infection to be found.
