Common Oral Conditions


Can you imagine how your teeth would look and feel if you didn’t brush regularly? What if you never brushed at all? Many people are surprised to learn that their pets are subject to the same dental problems that we humans are. Our pet’s dental health is just as important and is dependent on the same hygiene that we all ac­cept as necessary for our own teeth and gums.


Dogs and cats frequently suffer injuries to teeth and the bones and joints of the jaws.  Treatment is dependent on an accurate diagnosis of the injuries. A physical exam under anesthesia, together with high-detail dental x-rays, provides the most accurate assessment for treatment planning. Dental materials and techniques provide superior treatment options, compared to conventional surgery, that maximize recovery and minimize dental complications and the risk of persistent pain.
