At Treendale Pet Medical, we have state of the art dental equipment. Our RVN Ana Badra is demonstrating the IM3 elite veterinary dental machine.
Our veterinarians take pet dental health very seriously. Dental pain, gum disease and tooth ache is extremely common in our pets but tragically they suffer in silence because they can’t tell us how much pain they are in.
This tooth has a large cavity.
The gum margin looks quite healthy, however this dog had a large tooth abscess which was draining into the orbit behind the eye.
The tooth roots are quite difficult to remove in a dog because they go in so far.
Quality equipment helps remove them properly.
With quality equipment, the teeth can be cut into pieces to isolate individual roots for extraction.
This helps prevent them breaking off and leaving tooth root behind to cause a problem in the future.
We also use a Vet Tome for gentle root extraction to prevent trauma to the gums, the dental cavity and the tongue.
The vet tome from IM3 helps remove teeth gently without causing trauma and pain.
Dentistry is very important.
Most pets over the age of four have some form of dental disease.
Tooth ache hurts. Our pets suffer in silence unfortunately.
Get your pet's teeth checked regularly
Prevention is better than cure! Don't let your dog's teeth end up here! Get them cleaned!
To prevent your dog having a life of oral pain and eventually losing all of its teeth, you need to have your pet's teeth cleaned every six months. If you don't, the photos above is what happens.
No bones are not good for your dog's teeth.
Dentistry is important for your pet, to keep them pain free but also to extend their lives. Severe dental infection, gum recession and a mouth full of pus and pain has severe systemic effects on your pet's health. Chronic infection and build up of pus and toxins leads to toxaemia and sepsis as the toxins and bacteria get into the blood stream. This damages the organs. Microabscesses are found in the liver, kidneys, spleen, heart and lungs at necropsy on pets with severe and chronic dental disease. As well as ilnness and reducing the quality of life due to oral pain, dental disease causes bad breath or halitosis. This reduces the enjoyment you experience with your pet.
At Treendale Pet Medical, we take pet dentistry seriously.
We have built a dedicated dental facility within the walls of Treendale Pet medical so that we can fully service animal’s dental needs with the very specialised equipment that is required. We offer full mouth dental radiographs with our modern dental x-ray equipment to get up close and personal with each tooth so that we don’t miss hidden problems lurking below the gum line and your pet doesn’t have dental pain.
The tooth below doesn't look too bad after it has a prophylactic scale and polish. At Treendale Pet medical, we take radiographs of animals with dental disease. Take a look at the x-ray below the image of the tooth. The tooth root is rotten and a dental abscess is present. This is extremely painful. Unfortunately, our pets suffer in silence. This tooth needed to be removed and it would have been missed without a radiograph.
Here is the x-ray of the tooth above. Can you see the abscess?
