Dentistry & Digital Radiology

Dogs and cats have teeth too!

Dentistry for animals is a complex and complicated topic requiring advanced training.

Many human medical specialties are dedicated solely to this field (Dentists, Endodontists, Orthodontists, Periodontists, Dental technicians and Hygienists).

We have a special interest in Veterinary Dentistry, and have invested focused time and training to develop our preventative and therapeutic dental program.

Our dental patients benefit from IV fluid support, electrocardiography, blood pressure tracking and pulse oximetry while under anesthesia for their comprehensive dental evaluation.

A tooth’s crown can appear healthy but below the gum line problems can arise. Dental Radiographs make detecting these problems possible.

We have developed specialized pain prevention protocols, and utilize dental radiography to evaluate pathology below the gum line.

Our dental evaluation starts with the removal of plaque, tartar, and calculus. We then carefully search for pockets around the crown of every tooth, taking digital dental radiographs of any questionable region. Once the oral cavity and teeth have been evaluated, we chat with our dog-or-cat’s parent to plan treatment options.

We are careful to use state of the art pain prevention techniques for our patients, including class IV laser therapy and needle-less acupuncture as well as local anesthetics and central acting pain control so our patients have a relaxed comfortable experience.

We are happy to answer any dental hygiene or treatment question you may have.
