During a routine dental exam, your veterinarian may recommend digital dental x-rays to assess the health of your pet’s teeth and gums.

The use of digital x-ray equipment significantly reduces your pet’s exposure to increased levels of radiation by a third of the amount, making it safer for your pet as well as the staff involved.
