Endodontics is the use of root canal treatment for fractured, discolored (dead) and infected teeth. At Animal Dental Care & Oral Surgery we utilize root canal therapy, when possible, to allow the pet to retain the function of their tooth without the trauma of extraction.
Occlusion is the relationship between the teeth of the maxilla and mandibles and how they relate to each other when the mouth is closed. Many dogs and cats deal with painful malocclusions from the time they are puppies and kittens. Orthodontic treatments for these patients can take many forms, including acrylic appliances, elastic chains and simple extractions. There is always a viable treatment option for patients with painful malocclusions.
