Severe dental disease in a cat. This patient required multiple extractions
Dental disease can cause multiple internal health problems from kidney disease, to liver and heart problems. Our goal is to provide dental cleanings as often as necessary to prevent these systemic problems.
Veterinary dentistry has changed significantly over the last decades. There are now dental specialists and advanced instruments and procedures that include root canals and caps. We have recently installed new instruments to better treat our patients. We now use a Midmark Dental unit for ultrasonic scaling, polishing and assisting in extractions of teeth. We can now take digital dental radiographs so we can see below the gum surface. This is a very important part of making decisions about individual tooth health. We do not do endodontics (root canals and caps) here but there are specialists who do this.
