In human dental medicine, full-mouth radiographs are often part of diagnostic routine with respect to planning the therapeutic schedule. The aim of the present study on 226 dogs and 115 cats was to investigate the clinical value of full-mouth radiographs in dogs and cats with dental diseases. Findings of clinical examination were compared to findings discovered on the radiographs. Additional and also unexpected radiological findings with in general high clinical significance were documented. Incidental findings and radiological findings without clinical correlate were also noted. The authors conclude that full-mouth radiographs are indicated in the individual patient as well as a routine diagnostic measure in dogs and cats with dental disease. The various views are indicated.
