Dental X-Rays

May 2016 by Dr Shannon Lee, BVSc, MANZCVSc, DICEVO, Consultant Veterinarian, Advanced Equine Dentistry

This month, Dr Shannon Lee, a member of Equine Dental Vets, talks about the important role of dental x-rays.

He outlines why x-rays are commonly used in veterinary denistry, so that horse owners can better understand the process, technology and benefits for their own horses undergoing treatment. 

Almost every adult and many children have had dental x-rays as part of their regular trips to the dentist. This is because x-rays still provide valuable information that your dentist uses to make decisions about treating your teeth and mouth to maintain a healthy environment in the horse’s mouth.
