In addition to the routine pet dental care we offer, we also provide advanced dentistry services. This includes sealing and bonding, bone grafting, complete restorations, orthodontics, root canal therapy, and more!
Bonded sealants are an excellent way of repairing uncomplicated crown fractures. An uncomplicated crown fracture is a chip or defect in the enamel and possibly the dentin of the tooth, however the pulp chamber of the tooth is still protected. The fracture causes pain and discomfort for your pet even though they rarely show clinical signs. Pets can go back to feeling great, eating, drinking, and playing normally after a bonded sealant is performed.
What if the pulp chamber is exposed causing a complicated crown fracture? If there is exposure to the pulp chamber where the nerve, artery, and vein live, then the tooth must be extracted or a root canal must be performed. This is an incredibly painful condition and must be repaired as soon as possible.
This procedure is performed when there is bone loss from severe dental disease. Periodontal therapy helps to treat painful, infected areas and allows for tissue regeneration. If there is significant bone loss, a bone graft is placed.
Removal of Deciduous (baby) Teeth
It is very important to remove deciduous teeth if they are still in the mouth once the adult teeth come in. The deciduous teeth can cause increased amounts of tartar build-up as well as damage to surrounding structures.
A restoration corrects a loss of tooth structure caused by tooth decay, injuries, or disease. The tooth structure is replaced by a composite material leaving the tooth looking and feeling as good as new.
Extractions are performed on teeth that cannot survive even with extensive advanced dental treatments. Extracting damaged teeth allows the bone and gingival tissue to recover and allows your pet to heal and become pain-free.
Bone grafting is performed when there is missing or diseased bone surrounding a healthy tooth. These problems are found when taking dental radiographs along with an oral exam performed by the veterinarian.
After a root canal is performed, crown placement is the next step. Your pet gets a tooth impression, and a dental laboratory makes a custom crown to fit your pets’ tooth. These crowns are incredibly strong and allow for your pet to go back to normal, and even rough, chewing.
Jaw Fracture Repair
Fractured jaws can occur for multiple reasons whether from trauma, disease, or infected teeth. Fractured jaw repairs allow for the jaw to heal properly, regain their jaw strength, and become pain free.
Gingival Hyperplasia Repair
Gingival enlargement is a common disease in dogs. Special techniques are used to remove the excess tissue and prevent bone loss, gingivitis, pocketing, and discomfort. Performing this repair allows for your pet to chew normally and without pain.
