Advanced Dentistry & Root Canals
At Roanoke Animal Hospital, our staff and veterinarians are trained to educate and perform a comprehensive oral health assessment and treatment (COHAT) plan. Dental cleaning and assessment procedures (COHAT), including routine dental care services, are imperative to your pet’s overall health and wellness.
If significant periodontal disease, tooth fractures or other conditions are present, treatment will involve a day at the veterinary hospital to plan and perform the dental procedure under general anesthesia. When professional dental care is indicated, our staff is knowledgeable and experienced in providing safe anesthesia to ensure your pet is in good hands.
While under anesthesia, dental X-rays are performed, which can identify problems below the root. With x-rays, our staff may find that periodontal disease or other conditions have damaged the teeth. Although in these cases extraction may be recommended, sometimes other options are available to treat and save your pet’s teeth.
Roanoke Animal Hospital can perform advanced dental procedures including:
- Endodontic procedures (root canals) in single-rooted teeth
- Advanced periodontal therapy including Periodontic procedures (root planing) and periceutic therapies (drug therapy used in periodontal disease)
- Oral Surgery & Fracture Repair
- Complicated Extractions
- Gingival mass removal
Contact us today to schedule your pet’s oral exam to establish their COHAT plan. Your pet will thank you!
