Stomatology

Did you know that even dogs and cats can suffer from toothaches?

Just like us, pets can suffer from dental problems. In addition to bad breath, neglected teeth can have a negative impact on your four-legged friend’s food intake and fitness.

Preventive care

How to avoid dental problems? Prevention is the easiest way. The quality of the teeth is determined by the right choice of food, active care of the animal’s teeth and gums, as well as regular check-ups with the veterinarian. At the Mountain Veterinary Clinic we will be happy to advise you on how to care for your dog, cat or rodent’s teeth and show you how to clean their teeth.

 

 

 

Dental treatments

Tartar removal

Tartar causes painful gingivitis, bleeding and tooth loss. If neglected for a long time, it can lead to heart, liver and kidney disease. Tartar removal is performed under general anesthesia. To slow down plaque buildup and tartar formation, we re-polish the enamel after ultrasonic treatment of the teeth. This is not just a cosmetic treatment, but to prolong the effect of the procedure to your pet’s satisfaction.

Tooth extraction

Even in a pet’s life, there will be times when it comes to extracting teeth. Because extracting a decayed, loose or baby tooth can be uncomfortable for the pet, we administer pain-relieving medication after the procedure.

Teeth cutting

The ever-growing incisors of rodents need to be trimmed from time to time. We use a precision circular saw for this procedure, which prevents damage to the tooth root and makes the treatment less uncomfortable for the pet.

X-ray examination of the teeth

To get an accurate picture of what is going on with the patient’s teeth, we perform a dental x-ray. This allows us to detect hidden cavities or defects that we would miss by looking with the naked eye.

 

Dental Surgery

In addition to routine dental treatment, we also perform oral surgery, such as treatment of jaw fractures and removal of tumors or foreign bodies.
