Specialty Oral Surgery
Pet Oral Surgery
Dental care is essential for pets. Without proper care, your pet could experience mouth pain that requires medical attention. Pet oral surgery involves various procedures performed in the mouth. Having pets undergo oral surgery can help treat or prevent multiple conditions, from infections to cancer. At Village Animal Clinic, P.C., we perform specialty oral pet surgeries, including surgical tooth extractions, root canal therapy, restorations, periodontal therapy, jaw fracture repair, and oral tumor removal.
All household pets, such as dogs and cats, can receive pet oral surgery to help improve their lives. If you notice any symptoms of dental issues, like a loss of appetite, swollen gums, broken teeth, pawing at the mouth, drooling or more, you can visit us to assess possible treatment.
Benefits of Pet Oral Surgery
If oral surgery is necessary, it can help your pet become active again and have a new lease on life. Pets benefit from oral surgery because it can:
• Remove any pain-causing irritants.
• Prevent or slow the progression of periodontal disease
• Prevent future tooth loss.
How Pet Oral Surgery Works
Board-certified veterinarians specializing in dentistry, oral surgery and oral medicine perform oral surgeries for pets. A veterinary dentist or a resident will assess the causes of oral pain and determine if your pet will need surgery. Once it’s confirmed your pet will undergo oral surgery, the veterinarian will explain the procedural details.
Pet oral surgery requires patients to be under anesthesia during the procedure. We do everything possible to minimize and reduce anesthesia risks and keep your pet comfortable. Once the patient is under anesthesia, they will receive a comprehensive oral health assessment and treatment. The veterinary dentist or resident can remove any teeth and tumors or perform root canal therapy.
When the surgery is over, your pet will need plenty of time to recover and recuperate. Take care of your pet by preparing a comfortable rest area, providing soft food to eat, and ensuring that they drink plenty of water.
