Dental Radiography

At Kedron Vet, we are dedicated to ensuring the optimal health and happiness of your cherished companions. Our commitment to comprehensive care leads us to embrace advanced techniques and tools that make a significant impact on your pets’ well-being. We’re excited to introduce our new dental X-ray and shed light on the often underestimated but vitally important aspect of dental care: radiographs for diagnosing and treating periodontal and endodontic diseases in your beloved dogs and cats.

What Are Dental Radiographs? Dental radiographs, commonly known as dental X-rays, are non-invasive images that reveal the hidden story beneath your pet’s gums and teeth. Just like in human dentistry, these images are invaluable in identifying issues that might not be visible to the naked eye. Periodontal disease is a silent but common affliction in pets, impacting more than 80% of adult dogs and cats. It goes beyond bad breath – untreated, it can lead to severe pain, tooth loss, and even affect vital organs like the heart and kidneys.

The Purrfect Solution: Dental Radiographs

  1. Root Infections and Abscesses: Dental radiographs can expose hidden infections at the root of the teeth. Abscesses, which are often painful and can lead to swelling, can be swiftly identified through X-ray images. Early detection of these infections enables us to provide targeted treatment, preventing further complications.
  2. Fractured Teeth: Sometimes, a fractured tooth might not show obvious signs from the outside. However, the pain can be excruciating for your pet. Dental radiographs uncover hairline fractures and chips that might otherwise be invisible.
  3. Periodontal Pockets: Periodontal disease can lead to the formation of pockets between the gums and teeth. These pockets can cause severe damage over time. Radiographs reveal the extent of pocket formation, guiding us in developing a treatment plan.
  4. Oral Tumours: Certain types of oral tumours may develop in your pet’s mouth without presenting any obvious external symptoms. Dental radiographs aid in detecting these tumours, which can range from benign to malignant, enabling timely intervention and a higher chance of successful treatment.
  5. Impacted Teeth: Some pets may have teeth that fail to emerge properly from the gums. These impacted teeth can cause discomfort and contribute to misalignment. Dental radiographs reveal such issues, assisting us in determining whether extraction is necessary.
  6. Bone Loss: Periodontal disease can lead to bone loss around the roots of teeth. This condition weakens the foundation of teeth and can result in tooth mobility or loss. Dental radiographs help us assess the extent of bone loss and strategize appropriate treatment.

Armed with detailed insights from radiographs, our veterinary team can tailor treatment plans to your pet’s specific needs, ensuring they receive targeted care. Dental problems can cause significant pain for our furry friends. Early detection through radiographs enables us to intervene promptly, alleviating discomfort and improving their quality of life.

Let’s work together to keep those tails wagging and those purrs resonating with contentment!
