At Grandview Animal Hospital, we have worked to ensure that we provide all of our patients with the latest in diagnostic tools. We believe that these diagnostic tools are important because they allow us to catch and treat a wider array of problems than we would otherwise. This means that we can serve your pet to the best of our ability. One of the tools we use that sets us apart from everyone else is dental radiology. Take a look at how our veterinary team can serve the citizens of Delta, Newton, and Langley township.
What Is Dental Radiology?
Radiology is a subset of diagnostic technology that uses imaging modalities to take a look at what is happening underneath the surface of the skin without having to actually perform surgery. Dental radiology can encompass a variety of tools, including x-rays, CT scans, and MRIs. However, these tools have been specially designed to help veterinarians diagnose what is going on in a patient's mouth. For example, when people go to the dentist, they might receive a panoramic x-ray that takes a look at their teeth. This is one example of how radiology might be used in a dental setting.
What Problems Can Radiology Diagnose in the Mouth?
If a pet comes to see us due to issues related to the oral cavity, we might use a radiology tool to get a closer look at what is happening. Some of the issues we might be able to diagnose using these radiology tools include:
Cysts and Abscesses: Sometimes, a pet might have a cyst or an abscess growing in the mouth. This can lead to excruciating pain and might make it hard to eat. We can use dental radiology to diagnose and treat this issue.
Root Problems: We might also identify an issue related to the roots of the teeth. If the roots are having problems, this can lead to pain that might prevent the pet from eating.
Caries: We can also identify dental caries (cavities) with these radiology tools. Then, we can fill or extract the problem teeth as necessary.
