Adequate oral care is an important part in the management of the overall health of your pet. Oral disease is the most frequently diagnosed health problem in pets. An astounding 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats show signs of oral disease by age three according to the American Veterinary Dental Society (AVDS). Common indications of oral disease include bad breath, a change in eating or chewing habits, drooling or dropping food from the mouth, loose teeth or teeth that are discolored or covered in tartar, pawing at the face or mouth, and depression.
After a thorough examination our veterinary dentist will discuss treatment options and recommendations. Services performed by our veterinary dental surgeon, Paul Orsini, DVM, ACVS, AVDC, include dental radiographs and cleanings, periodontics (gum disease), endodontics (root canal therapy), orthodontics (correction of malocclusion), restorative dentistry (caries treatment, crown fabrication and treatment), general oral surgery, facial fracture and cleft palate repair, and oral neoplasia therapy.
