I'm assuming x rays would show how the teeth are below the gum line (well above since it's the upper teeth haha)
Yes, it would be X-rays that would show it. I had two of my dogs mouth X-ray when they had procedures done because they were having anesthesia anyway.
Are you moving back to would be nice to have a Korean dog meetup
