   Dental Radiography - Veterinary Dentist     

Dental radiographs are one of the most important diagnostic tools available to a veterinarian and veterinary dentist. They allow the internal anatomy of the teeth, the roots and the bone that surrounds the roots to be examined. When performing dental procedures at Advanced Animal Care of Colorado, it is standard of care for us to perform “Full Mouth Radiographs” to allow for complete visualization of disease below the gum line. 

Intra-oral radiographs are made using small radiographic films or digital sensors placed inside the patient’s mouth, and provide superior quality for examination of individual teeth or sections of the jaws compared with standard-sized veterinary radiographs. Because veterinary patients will not cooperate when a radiograph or sensor is placed in the mouth, taking dental radiographs requires that the patient is anesthetized or sedated.

The radiation risk to the patient from taking dental radiographs is minimal. Because we use digital dental radiography equipment with the latest technology, we significantly decrease the radiation exposure to both the patient as well as our veterinary staff. 

As stated in the American Animal Hospital Association’s dental care guidelines and advocated by the American Veterinary Dental Society, we follow the recommendation of using digital dental radiography on all of our dental care patients.
