interpreting dental radiographs

This article is sponsored content brought to you by iM3.

Nearly 8 out of 10 dogs and cats seen by veterinarians need dental care, yet a much smaller percentage receive it. And because at least 60% of a patient’s tooth lies below the gum line, intraoral radiographs are essential to proper evaluation and treatment of dental disease.

Take the guesswork out of interpreting dental radiographs.

SignalSMILE by SignalPET ushers in a new wave of AI-powered dentistry diagnostics in veterinary medicine.

Powered by artificial intelligence and patented machine learning, thousands of clinicians across the world are now instantly supported by the most advanced diagnostic technology available to veterinarians.

SignalSMILE’s patented AI detects abnormalities for the 7 most common dental pathologies and aids point-of-care decision-making.

  • Furcation Bone Loss
  • Periapical Lucency
  • Resorptive Lesion
  • Retained Root
  • Severete Attachment Loss
  • Significant Tooth with Pathology
  • Tooth Fracture
