Veterinary Dentistry Services in Kenosha

Dental disease is very common among cats and dogs.  By some estimates, 75% of cats and dogs over the age of 3 years old have dental disease significant enough to warrant treatment.  Dental disease can affect many organs in mammals. Making sure your dog gets dental care or your cat gets dental care is important to their overall well-being.  Ask yourself one question…does your pet’s breath smell bad?  If it does, chances are there is a serious problem already.

Effects of Dental Disease

At our hospitals, we have seen a variety of effects of dental disease:

  • Severe pain that stops pets from eating
  • Heart infections that cause heart failure
  • Tooth Root abscesses put pressure on the eye
  • Congenital issues pushing a tooth through the upper palate and into the nose
  • Diseases eating the jawbone
  • Chronic blood infections resulting in severe lethargy

Many people have noted the effects of dental disease on their own pets and haven’t even realized it.  Once they have treated the disease, they often note that their pet eats better and has more energy.

Extensive Veterinary Training

At our hospitals, we have spent extensive time in additional training to learn and perform the following procedures.  It is relatively uncommon for general vets to provide all of these services in their hospitals.

  • Dental cleaning and evaluation
  • Dental x-rays
  • Surgical extraction of teeth
  • Interceptive dentistry (think doggie/kitty braces, but not quite)
  • Root Canal
  • Dental sealants (to try and prevent root canals)
  • Vital Pulpectomy
  • Dentiduous cyst removal
  • Hemimandibulectomy (partial jaw amputation)
  • Fibromatous epulis removal
  • Cancer removal / debulking
  • Jaw fracture fixation

In our hospitals, we believe that dental disease is so significant, that we evaluate the disease on every patient.  We have all seen the benefit that good oral health plays in the overall health of our patients.  Plus, your pet’s breath will smell better too!
