Dog and cat dental cleanings are very similar to human dental cleanings, except that we are required to use anesthesia to properly and safely examine and clean the teeth. After the cleaning, our veterinarians perform a thorough oral exam and check for signs of disease like gum loss, root exposure, or pockets around the root.
Also similar to human dentistry, we do full mouth radiographs (x-rays) of your pet. This allows our veterinarians to be able to evaluate the roots of your pet's teeth as well as any disease or abnormalities that are located below the gum line and not visible on examination alone.
We make every effort to save teeth that we feel have a chance to be successfully treated. In many circumstances, however, periodontal disease is so advanced that treatment without extraction is unsuccessful. We only extract teeth that in the doctor's opinion are beyond saving.
Many teeth require oral surgery to safely remove each individual root. We have extensive training and experience to perform these procedures properly. Pain medications are administered in clinic and provided for in-home aftercare.
If your pet suffers a jaw injury that can’t be corrected with other treatments, surgery may be necessary. Our veterinarians can repair minor cracks or severe mandible breaks with surgical procedures.
Our team can provide surgical treatment to remove benign or malignant tumors in your pet’s mouth. Your veterinarian will perform diagnostic scans and decide which course of action is best for your pet.
Just like humans, dogs and cats can be born with a cleft palate, also known as a palatal defect. To prevent infection or other health concerns, we can repair your pet's palatal defect with surgery.
Our pets can suffer from gum disease much like us! To prevent further health issues, we offer periodontal treatment services to treat pets with early to advanced stages of periodontal disease.
Root Canal Therapy is a less painful alternative to tooth extraction. If your pet suffers from a broken tooth, this procedure will remove the infected tissue of the canal and replace it with dental material.
Dental crowns aren't just for humans! Pets with broken or fractured teeth can get dental crowns, which will allow them to chew comfortably and prevent further injury.
Sometimes misaligned teeth can cause issues with your pet's bite and how they chew. We offer orthodontic services to help ease any issues with their bite to prevent pain or injury.
