Dentistry

Research indicates that more than 85% of dogs and cats over 4 years old suffer from periodontal disease, a condition in which bacteria attack the soft tissues in the mouth.  Even with regular brushing, plaque are deposited on the tooth surface, out of sight, above and below the gumline.  This often leads to gum inflammation, discomfort and bad breath.  Dental disease can also lead to life threatening diseases including heart, kidney, liver and lung disease.  It can also weaken the immune system, causing joint disease and slow wound healing.  Often these diseases are "silent" until they are advanced, or it is too late.  Your pet's dental health program begins with an annual check-up and cleaning by your veterinarian.  We are equipped with a dental X-ray unit, professional dental equipment to ultrasonically scale your pet's teeth and to give them a fluoride polish for further protection.

Dental radiography is a very important diagnostic tool used in our practice

The digital dental radiology system makes x-rays available to our doctors immediately, with tools to examine them in greater magnification and accuracy. Without this equipment the doctor can only see 50% of the teeth, as the other 50% are below the gum line and can only be assessed by x-ray. 

 

Digital dental radiographs are used to view the dental tissues and supporting structures of the teeth. They are also used to identify problems with the crowns of the teeth, facial and jaw bones, as well as the nasal cavity.

 

High definition intraoral digital radiographs provide exceptionally clear pictures for better diagnosis and use approximately 90% less than the usual dosage of radiation. Additionally, intraoral radiographs require less time to produce quality films, thus decreasing the time that your pet is under anesthesia. Recent studies have indicated that full panoramic dental x-rays performed at the time that a pet is having a dental cleaning while under anesthesia detected 30% more bad teeth than when the teeth were assessed visually.
