Intraoral dental radiographs are needed to successfully diagnose and treat oral disease. At Pacific Northwest Veterinary Dentistry and Oral Surgery, we provide the best care possible for your pet, this includes intraoral dental radiographs.

Intraoral dental radiographs allow visualization of what lurks below the gum line which is 2/3rds of the tooth in dogs and cats. Intra oral dental radiographs permit visualization of structures and disease below the gumline such as the root, periodontal ligament, surrounding bone, tooth resorption, tooth fractures, impacted or unerupted teeth, oral tumors and fractures to the jaw.

In order to obtain intraoral dental radiographs which is when the dental radiograph plate is placed in the oral cavity anesthesia is needed to keep your pet free of motion and permit safe use of our equipment.
