The Benefits of Veterinary Dentistry

Pets can benefit from many of the same dental specialties that are available to their owners, including ultrasonic cleaning and root planing, periodontal surgery, endodontic procedures (such as root canals), tooth restorations (including crowns and fillings), orthodontia correction, oral-maxillary surgery (from extractions to traumatic repairs), correction of congenital defects, removal of oral masses, and reconstructive surgery.

Routine annual mouth examinations by a veterinarian are essential to recognizing dental problems before they result in chronic pain and potential systemic illness.

Advanced dental procedures like root canals and crowns may not be of interest to many because of the expense, but preventing tooth pain, maintaining proper oral function, and preventing systemic illness is of vital importance to your pet’s vitality, health, and wellbeing.
