Having dental radiographs allows us to detect diseased teeth below the gumline sometimes before you know there is a problem. It also enables the jaw to be imaged for fractures or masses.
We strive to keep our dental patients comfortable. If there are teeth that need extracted then local nerve blocks will be given in addition to other methods of pain control.
Dr. Ewert at Community Animal Hospital is the best vet I have ever taken my dog to see.
