Dental disease

Dental disease is one of the most common concerns we see with pets and can have anything from a mild impact on quality of life to causing marked illness, systemic disease and even life threatening complications. It isn't easy examining your pets teeth and many people think that because their pet is eating that they don't have a dental problem. Unfortunately this is not the case. Your pet needs to eat to live and they will continue to eat even in the face of quite significant disease and pain. It is amazing how well these animals respond to treatment and how it can dramatically improve their happiness and energy levels. Common signs of dental problems in your pet may include things like smelly breath, stained teeth, rubbing their mouth on the ground or "scratching” at their mouth. Mild disease progresses, sometimes quite quickly, and can result in tooth root infections, abscesses, loss of teeth, infections of the kidneys, liver or lungs and sometimes even stimulate the growth of cancers. This is why we believe it is vital to keep your pets teeth as healthy as possible. Home care is vital in helping to slow down and prevent dental disease in dogs and cats however it typically cannot "treat” tartar and gingivitis and other dental conditions. This requires dental treatment by a veterinarian

Dental Radiography

Dental radiography is something that is relatively new to veterinary practices. We have been using dental radiography for almost 15 years now and honestly we cannot imagine doing ANY dental procedure without it.

If you pet had a sore leg then you would expect your veterinarian to take an Xray of the leg to see if it was broken. If it was broken then you would also expect your veterinarian to take another Xray once they had fixed it to make sure everything was in the right place.

The same applies to dental disease. Over 2/3rds of a tooth lies below the gum line where we cannot see it. Without dental radiography we do not know whether a tooth has damage to it's root, possible tooth root infection, or if when removing a tooth that we have removed all of the tooth root.

We believe dental radiography to be essential to correct treatment of any dental concern. We had one of the first digital dental radiography setups in Australia and we currently use the IM3 CR System which allows us to get very high resolution images and magnification of up to 100 times actual size. You can be assured that all of our dental procedure estimates include dental radiographs to make sure we are doing the correct job and we are doing it properly.
