Just the tip of the iceberg!
Did you know only 1/6 of an Iceberg is visible above water? The same goes for your pets teeth! Only a small part of cats and dogs teeth are above the gum surface, which is why Dental Radiographs (x-rays) are so important! They help us see the hidden.
Not only are x-rays essential in evaluating dental and periodontal disease, they allow the root and bone anatomy to assessed. The American Animal Hospital Association now recommends taking x-rays after every extraction procedure to ensure that the roots of the tooth have been completely removed.
Dental radiographs are recommended for all dental procedures at NVC.
