Veterinary dentistry requires specialized diagnostics and additional training beyond the veterinary medicine degree.
At VRC, our full range of dental and oral surgery services and conditions treated include:
Oral malodor or inflammation: Severe gingivitis or inflamed oral tissue can be indicative of serious systemic disease and should never be dismissed simply as bad breath
Neoplasia: Surgical treatment of oral tumors
Fractured teeth: Teeth with exposed pulp must be treated or extracted, or they will become infected and abscess. Teeth can be salvaged with vital pulp capping or root canal therapy
Orthodontics: Evaluation and correction of common malocclusions (misaligned bites)
Jaw fracture repairs: Unlike orthodontic repairs, jaw repairs also require teeth alignment to maintain functionality
Oral defects: Congenital or traumatic defects requiring oral surgery
Periodontics: Treatment of periodontal tissue, which supports the teeth. Procedures include tooth scaling and polishing, root planing, mucogingival surgery, and guided tissue and bone regeneration
Restorations: Caries repair, metal crowns, and bonding
