DENTISTRY

A dental appointment with a vet will involve a visual assessment the teeth, gums and other tissues of the mouth. However as it is inherently difficult to completely assess all of the teeth in a fully conscious animal, further assessment may be recommended under sedation or anaesthesia. A complete oral examination requires assessment both above and below the gum line. Sometimes, radiographs (X-rays) are taken to provide an image of the bone and tooth roots within the bone.

We have new and modern ultrasonic dental descale, dental burring, cutting and extraction equipment, with polishing tools and can perform these procedures at all of our clinics.

Rabbits have teeth which grow continuously throughout their life. Many rabbit digestive problems are connected to abnormal tooth growth so we think dentistry in rabbits is just as important as it is in cats and dogs.
