Abstract

Dental radiography is a critical tool in the evaluation and treatment of feline oral diseases. Although dental radiographs can be obtained using standard radiographic equipment and film, a dental radiography unit and intraoral film provide superior images, easier patient positioning, and less radiation exposure. The problem of zygomatic arch superimposition over the maxillary premolars and molars may be avoided by using the extraoral near-parallel technique. Full-mouth radiographs are indicated in cats presented for dental treatment for the first time because important conditions may be found.
