Pet Canine and feline dentistry with full mouth dental radiography
Dental disease is the most common disease in dogs and cats, with over 70% of dogs and 50% of cats over the age of 2 suffering from some degree of dental disease. We are particularly interested in dentistry for dogs and cats because dental disorders are painful conditions. According to the American Veterinary Dental College, symptoms of dental disease include bad breath, loose teeth, teeth covered with dentin, pain when opening and eating, drooling and food falling out of the mouth. However, pain occurs only in very severe dental disorders, which causes many pet owners to be healthy despite the potential for severe dental diseases. Therefore, veterinarians need to examine their pet’s teeth during every physical examination to detect these problems early. We also invest in state-of-the-art dental equipment and training to assess and treat your pet’s dental condition thoroughly. Oral and maxillofacial surgery finds many painful tooth conditions that are overlooked when teeth radiographs are unavailable, such as fractures of the roots, abscesses, and lesions. Please get in touch with our clinic if you have any questions about your pet’s dental illness.
