Poulsbo Animal ClinicDiagnostic Imaging for Your Pet’s Oral Health
Digital dental radiology, commonly known as x-rays, is a diagnostic imaging procedure that is helpful in evaluating your pet’s oral health. Digital x-rays are high-definition images that allow us to view areas of the mouth that are not easily seen during a routine examination, such as your pet’s gumline and jaw bone. These images help us catch signs of disease or injury that would otherwise be missed.
Digital x-rays help us diagnose many types of disease or injury, including:
- Tooth decay or abscesses
- Fractured tooth or jaw
- Reabsorption of the root on a tooth
Poulsbo Animal Clinic takes great care to ensure your pet’s condition is diagnosed quickly and accurately. We use digital radiology, a modern imaging system that allows us to take high-quality images with less radiation exposure than traditional imaging tools. These images are typically taken during the dental procedure itself, which allows us to quickly identify the problem and perform oral surgery if needed, such as a tooth extraction or tooth preservation procedure.
