What is the first diagnostic tool you choose when presented with an animal that has broken a leg? You take a radiograph (x-ray). Why? To see what is hidden under the skin. The same premise must hold true for veterinary dentistry. In order to diagnose and create a patient’s dental treatment plan, the complete extent of existing pathology must be known. Radiology is essential in accessing this information. Digital intraoral radiology should be an integral part of every involved dental case.
At Redmond-Fall City Animal Hospital we are proud to have an excellent digital dental radiology system. Our team has been trained by a board certified veterinary dentist to ensure the highest quality care.
For most of us, caring for our teeth and gums has been part of our daily routine for as long as we can remember. Just like you, your pet needs dental care too-regular, professional care from our team and effective home care to keep your pet’s mouth healthy.
Unfortunately, when our pets have dental disease, the oral bacteria can be a source of infection to their heart, liver, and kidneys. It is important to have your pet’s teeth examined and cleaned on a regular basis to protect their teeth, gums, and vital internal organs. Our specialized dental services include ultrasonic scaling, polishing, fluoride treatment, tooth extraction, oral surgery and digital dental x-rays.
