dental.jpgRegular dental cleaning of your pet's teeth is one way to extend their life and improve the quality of life as well. Dental problems can be just as painful for our pets as they are for us. Your pets cannot always tell you how he or she feels, but they will know the difference when you have their oral disease corrected. As an added benefit, this can rectify some of the causes of bad breath.

Remember that we participate in Dental Month in both February and August each year, and offer a 15% discount on dental products and services. Please note that this excludes diets. If you're interested in getting your pet a dental procedure during either month, call us right away! Dental slots book up very quickly for these months, and can be booked months in advance.

Complete Dental Cleaning

We provide dental cleaning with the most up-to-date ultrasonic equipment. The cleaning is performed by an experienced veterinary technician, while the anesthesia is monitored by our doctors.


Digital Dental Radiography

Dental radiograhs are a very important diagnostic tools available to veterinarians.  They allow the internal anatomy of the teeth, the roots and the jaw be examined.

Intra-oral radiographs are made using a small digital sensor that is placed inside the patient's mouth, and provide superior quality for examination of individual teeth or sections of the jaws compared with standard-sized veterinary radiographs.  Because veterinary patients will not cooperate when a radiograph or sensor is placed in the mouth, this process does require that the patient be anesthetized or sedated. 

We will make a recommendation whether or not to take radiographs of all the teeth ("full-mouth radiographs") based on the reason for presentation of the patient and the results of the initial visual examination of the mouth.  It is common for a patient, referred for one specific problem, to have additional oral problems that may become apparent only if full-mouth radiographs are made.  Full- mouth radiographs also establish a base-line for future comparison.

Hig Risk Patients

We perform dental procedures on pets of all ages and with various medical conditions. Our anesthetic drugs and monitoring equipment are state-of-the-art. At Cornerstone Animal Hospital, we like to be certain about the condition of the pet while under anesthesia and so have a dedicated anesthetist whose only task is to monitor the patient's vital signs during the procedure.

Dental Charting

Using a dental chart for each specific patient allows us to track changes in individual tooth health, so that we can take action before there is irreversible disease-driven damage.

Nerve blocks for extractions

Just as your dentist uses Novocaine or other numbing agents prior to working in your mouth, we use a similar drug to reduce the pain your pet experiences from tooth extraction, periodontal work and any other dental procedure.

Exodontics

We perform precise surgical extractions of teeth that require removal due to trauma, infection or immune disorders. Preventative maintenance like routine dental cleanings can help prevent future extractions and missing teeth.

Pain medication for painful procedures

As anyone who has had oral surgery knows, it takes several days after an extraction for the pain to go away. That is why your pet should have pain medication for at least a few days after his or her extraction. We employ multi-modal pain relief, a systematic approach to controlling your pet’s pain.

Tooth brushing Demonstrations

Pets, just like us need regular dental care. It is best to brush your pet’s teeth after each meal in addition to routine professional cleaning. We will be happy to demonstrate how simple it is to brush your pet’s teeth. However, we realize that not all pets will tolerate this and we offer other home care options like dental chews and treats.

Pet of the Month

Rocket

Rocket is a four-year old Black Lab who we have had the pleasure of helping care for since 2014. As you can see from his photo, he is a super happy boy! When he is home you can find him with his best friend Hershey, the Chocolate Lab or playing with his West Paw Bumi Tug Toy. Rocket also loves nature. So much so that his favorite snack is leaves! Finally, when he is full and has played to his heart's content, Rockets favorite thing to do is take a well deserved nap. We are so glad to be able to watch Rocket grow with his loving family.

Congratulations Rocket!
