How to Ready Your Clinic for Veterinary Dentistry

Your clinic may be ready to start implementing dental hygiene and more for your clients. This means that you need to start taking dental xrays to be able to make more accurate diagnoses.  To take dental xrays you are going to need a dental xray generator for your office, digital xray sensors and a computer system to acquire and store the images.

We have a an array of tube head options to fit the specific needs of your clinic. Also, when it comes to secure computer networking we are experts in our field supplying reliable, fast and durable solutions for our Veterinarian clients.

The best place to start in this process is with a brief consultation over the phone. In a matter of minutes we can come up with a plan and some options for your clinic.

We know that price is a concern for all of our clients and have looked into providing very high quality products that can also work in a budget. We never offer the cheapest options, because we understand that a cheap option today can turn into expensive options down the road with down time and costly repair fees.

Wall mounted Xray Tube Heads are more reliable and often produced Xrays with less noise then portable units. They can be more expensive because you need one per exam room that you want to take dental xrays in. This can be easily balanced out by the long expected life of the wall mounted tube heads.


SodiumVet Focuses On Durability

The digital X-Ray sensor is one of the most expensive and delicate components of your digital diagnostic setup for Veterinarian Dentistry. Most of the sensors used for VET Dental are just renamed sensors intended for use in humans. Here at Sodium Vet we have worked with many different Veterinarians to develop special housings  and cases to greatly increase the durability of our Vet sensors and better meet the needs of our Veterinarians.

The reason why hard cases are not used in human dental radiography is because of the limited space inside the human mouth.

Our intention with our sensors is to provide a hard case that is very durable against accidental damage but does not impede the diagnostic quality of the sensor.

The VetDR will be the first sensor that will be sold with such a durable sensor barrier as an option.

Unlike many companies in this industry we are not just a middle man who is reselling products. Instead we are actively testing and developing new technology with our clients needs and every day use in mind.

We utilize 3D Printing for our rapid prototyping where engineers and PHDs in physics are reaching forward every day towards a product more usable to our customers and are able to produce even better diagnostics for the increased quality of care of their clients.

The Importance of Veterinary Dentistry

Even when a pet may otherwise have a reportedly healthy outlook, seemingly eating and drinking normally and even have a pleasant demeanor, periodontal disease could be lying just under the surface and could lead to life-threatening diseases. The most common clinical condition among cats and dogs is periodontal disease. In fact, 85 percent of all pets have periodontal disease by the time they are 3 years of age. Introducing a regular and thorough examination routine into the life of a pet could prevent damage to their internal organs. With a dental exam, most of these escalations could be easily prevented before it’s too late.

Promoting dental health is an important measure to promoting the overall health of the pet. It can also be a way to diagnose other health issues a pet may be experiencing. A pet’s teeth and gums should be checked at least once a year by a veterinarian to check for early signs of a problem and to keep a pet’s mouth clean and healthy. Because most dental diseases occur below the gumline where you can’t see it, a thorough exam will include taking radiograph images to see the precursors of periodontal disease.
