Full-mouth dental radiographs are performed as part of the dental patient diagnostic work-up, especially if the animal is presented for the first time, or if the clinical condition has changed significantly since the previous visit. Dental radiographs aid in diagnosis and guide treatment. They are also an important part of the legal record, and can be extremely valuable in client education. Full-mouth dental radiographs will reveal about 40% more pathology than was found on the clinical examination. Dental radiology is critical for proper diagnosis and treatment of oral conditions.
