Intraoral radiographs – technique and interpretation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There are a growing number of small animal veterinary practices in Australia that own and perform dental radiographs as part of their routine dental procedures. Dental radiographs aid clinicians in diagnosing dental disease more accurately and allows clinicians to assess some of the anatomical structures that” are not apparent to the eye, such as tooth roots. In addition, dental radiographs are extremely invaluable for clinicians in post-operative evaluation, allowing for effective client communication and serving as a legal document. Performing dental radiographs can be technically challenging due to unique skull structures and limited space in the oral cavity. This presentation is aimed at describing the commonly used techniques in performing intraoral and extraoral radiographs that are pertinent to canine and feline dentistry such as the bisecting angle technique. Interpretation of dental radiographs that includes normal anatomical findings and common pathological changes will also be thoroughly discussed. Attendees are encouraged to bring a dog/cat skull model (only if available; this is not mandatory) to this presentation.
