Jaw Fractures

Facial trauma and severe dental disease are primary contributors to jaw fractures in dogs and cats. One prevalent consequence of advanced periodontal disease is the weakening of the jawbone, leading to fractures.

At Animal Dental Care & Oral Surgery, we specialize in the advanced treatment of jaw fractures in pets. Our innovative intra-oral splint, crafted with precision using wire and acrylic, offers a highly effective solution. This technique addresses fractures in both the upper and lower jaws.

Key Features:

  • Non-Invasive Solution: Our intra-oral splint is designed to circumvent the need for invasive procedures like screws and wires into the bone, minimizing trauma to your pet.
  • Normal Eating During Healing: The splint allows for normal eating during the healing process, ensuring your pet’s comfort and well-being.
  • Preservation of Jaw Alignment: Maintaining the normal relationship between the jaw bones during healing is crucial. Our splint ensures that the jaws stay correctly aligned, promoting a seamless recovery.

The Process: One of our specialty doctors places a wire around the teeth (not in the bone) and reinforces it with a cold-cure acrylic material, creating a durable yet lightweight splint. This approach facilitates a swift recovery, with most splints removed within four weeks. Following treatment, dogs and cats typically resume their normal activities, displaying a full recovery.

Oral Tumors

At Animal Dental Care & Oral Surgery, we understand the significance of oral tumors in dogs and cats. These growths can range from benign to malignant, and our team is committed to providing comprehensive and effective treatment solutions with favorable long-term outcomes.

The correct treatment path begins with a meticulous approach. We prioritize obtaining a small biopsy sample to precisely identify the type of tumor. Further assessments include determining if the tumor has spread to critical areas such as the lungs or lymph nodes. Our advanced diagnostic tools, including detailed dental radiographs, allow us to gauge the local extent of the tumor.

Tailored Treatment Plans

Armed with this crucial information, our experienced team crafts personalized treatment plans. Each plan is carefully tailored to address the unique characteristics of the identified tumor. As part of our commitment to excellence, our veterinary dentists undergo rigorous training, including specialized education in treating oral tumors.

At Animal Dental Care & Oral Surgery, we prioritize the health and well-being of your beloved pets. Our focus on precision, expertise, and personalized care ensures that your pet receives the best possible treatment for oral tumors.
