Katy Trail Animal Hospital has state-of-the-art digital dental radiography (X-ray) equipment. Digital dental radiography allows us to visualize the internal anatomy of your pet's teeth along with the roots and surrounding bone. This allows us to diagnose bone loss or hidden disease that may be present in the tooth roots and jawbone areas that may not have been visible during our thorough oral exam prior to the dental procedure. It has additional benefits to your pet, such as allowing us to manipulate it after it is taken, allowing us to visualize the image in ways that are not possible with traditional film x-ray.
The digital images can be visualized within a few seconds following exposure, which reduces the amount of radiation exposure your pet receives and allows us to diagnose and treat your pet rapidly. Digital radiology is environmentally friendly because there are no chemicals to contaminate water.
We utilize the digital dental radiology during general dentistry procedures, emergencies and traumas.
