Endodontic Therapy

Tooth fracture that results in exposure of the pulp is often treatable by standard root canal therapy. This maintains the function of strategically important teeth, and has a good success rate in the dog.


Periodontal Surgery

This type of surgery is performed to reduce the depth of the gingival sulcus and to maintain the periodontal attachment apparatus.

Restorative Dentistry and Prosthodontics

While small animals rarely get “cavities,” it does occasionally occur, as well as traumatic injuries and root canal therapy that require restorative procedures, from “fillings” to the placement of full crowns.

Orthodontic Therapy

While it is unethical to alter the bite of a show or breeding dog or cat, congenital malocclusions are frequently treated with various orthodontic procedures to obtain an atraumatic occlusion.
