Normal Feline Dental Radiographs
I thought you might be interested in seeing what a set of normal cat dental radiographs looks like. This post contains the intra-oral dental radiographic images captured from a six-year-old domestic short haired cat with no radiographically-detectable dental pathology. In other words, this is a really boring set of radiographs and that is what we hope all of our patient will have. For orientations I have labelled each tooth with it Modified Triadan number as illustrated in the dental chart below. Also, note that each image is oriented properly and is posted in a logical order for ease of interpretation.
I have created a pdf version of this as well, in case you would like to save/print and share around the clinic – pdf version
The images were obtained using a Gendex 770 dental x-ray generator, a Sopix_2, size 2 digital sensor and Metron image software. I find the Sopix_2 works really well for cats and is also useful for quick intra-op or post-op shots of a smallish area (is too big for tiny areas in micro/nano dogs).
The images are oriented properly and presented in an order that makes sense.
