The reasons the vets take x-rays at Cherokee Animal Hospital.
Why Dental X-rays?
As a vet, I perform a dental X-ray on a patient to be able to determine the health of a tooth.
It’s like the Iceberg scenario, most of the disease happens under the surface and that is the root of the tooth.
The only way to evaluate that root is through X-rays. They help us decided whether or not that tooth is healthy and at 100% for your pet. That is why we vets do X-rays on teeth.
