Dental Care: Case Studies

Case Study 4: “Charlie”

By March 28, 2014 No Comments

Another great dental case that illustrates the importance of dental x-rays. This is Charlie, and he genetically had numerous retained baby teeth! If you look at his teeth, everything looks pretty normal, but the small size of the tooth raised suspicion. We took the radiograph, and sure enough, it’s a baby tooth sitting on top of mature tooth and crowding it. Without radiographs, many of these diagnoses are not possible. We are thrilled to have a digital unit, very similar to what your human dentist has, with settings designed specifically for Pets. Thank you Charlie for being a good sport and participating in this case study!
