Dental Radiography 

The lacy material surrounding the roots is the lower jaw bone, or mandible.  A tooth is like an iceberg--you only see about 1/3 of it!  But disease often starts in the part of the tooth you can't see-the root and bone.  That's where dental x-rays are helpful.  We now offer digital dental radiography.  Our new Progeny VetVision DC x-ray machine provides digital images of the highest quality.   For challenging cases, we can send images over the internet to board certified dentists, who can interpret the radiographs and give us timely advice.

Notice the detail in the image below.  There's nice detail of all the tooth structures.
