Dental X-rays in dogs are much like

the dental X-rays you receive at the dentist.

An X-ray machine (which only uses small amounts of radiation), is used to see areas we cannot view with the naked eye. The X-ray allows us to safely see inside the teeth and the areas below the gum.

If dental X-rays are not taken, dental disease cannot be accurately diagnosed, monitored, or treated. The knowledge we gain from dental radiographs allows us to provide better care from our team and better recommendations for home care. Additionally, the information we obtain speeds up your pet’s dental procedures and decreases the risk of complications.

The great news is that our team at PetNest Animal Hospital is fully equipped to handle any conditions we might find. Call us today at (469) 956-6100 to schedule an appointment for pet dental radiographs in Frisco, TX!

Reasons Your Pet May Need

Dental Radiographs

Your dog or cat may need dental radiographs for several reasons, including: 
  • In preparation for a regular dental cleaning
  • Broken teeth
  • Oral growths
  • Bad breath
  • Excessive salivating 
  • Trauma or injury

Why Does My Dog Need a Dental X-Ray?

It is important for dogs to have a dental X-ray if there are missing, discolored, or broken teeth, swollen gums, unusual growths, or even just bad breath. Even without any of these signs, dogs should have somewhat regular dental X-rays to ensure their mouths are healthy, just like we have regular X-rays at the dentist.

Does My Pet Need to Be Sedated for a Dental X-Ray?

Yes. Unlike humans, dogs typically need anesthesia to receive a dental X-ray. Anesthesia is considered to be safe and will only be used after a general examination. Your pet will be monitored closely during the dental exam. We may recommend pre-anesthetic blood tests to ensure good kidney and liver function before administering anesthesia.

How Fast Do We Get Results?

Our dental X-rays are ready for viewing almost immediately. Our vet will study them and provide your results as quickly as possible.

Will My Pet Be in Pain From a Dental X-Ray?

Your pet will be comfortably asleep and will not feel any discomfort at all during a dental X-ray. We will keep a close eye on your furry family member during the whole procedure to make sure he is safe!
