Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is an advanced new technology used to support recovery after many dental procedures. The non-invasive treatment stimulates cell regeneration by increasing blood flow to the target area. This is used to accelerate the healing process following dental surgery and to treat certain degenerative...

Mandibular Fracture Repair

Mandibular (jaw) fractures are very common injuries in cats and dogs. Jaw fractures are most often caused by trauma, but can be the result of complications from dental procedures like extractions and advanced periodontal disease. Symphyseal fractures refer to the area where the lower and...

Deciduous Tooth Removal

Retained deciduous tooth removal becomes necessary when your pet’s baby teeth fail to be replaced by permanent adult teeth. Starting at around three months of age, adult teeth begin forming—occasionally the emerging adult teeth don’t push out the original baby teeth. The extraction procedure is...

Bonded Sealants

Bonded sealants are used to repair shallow and deep dental fractures. Some fractures are impossible for the tooth to repair by itself. When this occurs, sealant is applied to fill the void, preventing further damage or infection, and allowing the tooth to heal. The treatment process...

Feline Odontoclastic Resorptive Lesions (FORL)

Feline tooth reabsorptions are when a cat’s body begins to attack its own teeth, occurring when cells called odontoclasts are activated and begin eating away at healthy dental bone cells. Although the root cause is still unknown, FORLs are one of the most common dental...

Root Planing and Scaling

Root planing is a dental process that removes plaque and calculus from the affected regions of your pet’s mouth. Eliminating these irritants helps fight inflammation and contributes to overall periodontal health. Large-scale plaque buildup is a haven for harmful bacteria that contribute to periodontal disease. Root...

Oronasal Fistula Repair

An oronasal fistula (ONF) is a passage-shaped opening between the oral cavity and the nasal cavity. ONF are the result of severe periodontal disease, botched dental extractions, trauma, foreign bodies and neoplasia, all of which damage the lining of the mouth or gums to create...

Doxirobe Applications

The Dental Center at East Padden uses Doxirobe gel (doxycycline hyclate) to treat and control periodontal disease in dogs. A single treatment helps reduce periodontal pocket depth, increase gum reattachment and reduce inflammation, working to improve gingival health in 2 to 4 weeks. Treatment is administered via...

Consil® Applications

Consil® is a bone graft particulate used to accelerate bone growth in cats and dogs. The synthetic material is placed over the site of the defect, filling the gap and gradually allowing real bone growth to replace it. This process repairs the targeted site in...

Digital Dental Radiography

Digital radiography is a powerful diagnostic tool used to detect dental disorders and injuries. A quick and painless process, radiology uses a controlled dose of x-ray radiation to examine your pet’s mouth, using the varying densities of its contents (teeth, gums, ligaments, etc.) to construct...
