Digital Dental X-rays in Tampa, FL
If your pet needs a dental X-ray, we understand that you want it to be performed as safely as possible. Here at Wellswood Midtown Animal Hospital, we offer the best and most up-to-date digital radiography in Tampa.
What Is a Digital X-ray?
Digital radiology or radiography, also known as a digital X-ray, is an advanced diagnostic tool that is mainly used to virtually see your pet’s organs or mouth, including, but not limited to, the cardiopulmonary, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, and urinary systems. It is a non-invasive process that allows us to have a better look at your pet's condition. With this gentle procedure, we can clearly see issues and address them quickly.
Dog and cat dental cleanings are not complete without full mouth X-rays. Though in many cases, the visible crown of the tooth may appear normal, X-rays can reveal problems with the root below. Once all of the teeth have been X-rayed, our veterinarian will review them and decide what treatment, if any, is required for each tooth. At Wellswood Midtown Animal Hospital, all dog and cat dental cleanings include full mouth X-rays. If you would like more information about our dental X-ray services, call us at (813) 877-1979 to schedule an appointment today.
The Benefits of Digital Vet X-Rays:
- Digital X-rays Have a Higher Image Quality Than Regular Film X-rays
- They Offer Instant Results, Allow For a Faster Diagnosis
- There Is Less Radiation Exposure Than With Film X-rays
- Digital Radiography Is Environmentally Friendly
Is Dental Radiology Painful or Harmful to My Pet?
X-rays are a completely painless procedure. If your pet is calm and cooperative, we will not even need to sedate them. If your dog or cat has anxiety issues, a sedative or general anesthesia may be administered to allow them to relax. X-rays are safer than ever for pets and humans alike, with minimal exposure to radiation, which is completely harmless.
