Oral Surgery In Dogs And Cats
If your pet is in need of corrective surgery to repair or treat damage within the jaw, teeth or tissue of the mouth, our experienced surgical team can provide effective oral and periodontal surgery. At Hope Springs, our experienced surgical teams perform periodontal and oral surgery in dogs and cats to treat extensive or advanced periodontal disease.
Our oral and periodontal surgical correction and repair procedures include:
- Gingival flaps
- Oral mass removals
- Oro-nasal fistulas
- Stabilization of the mandible (usually after trauma or deterioration with age)
Our veterinary surgeons and technicians approach all surgical procedures with a focus on patient safety and comfort first. When performing oral and periodontal surgery in dogs and cats, we work to prevent unnecessary pain or discomfort by utilizing advanced technology to closely monitor our pets throughout the surgical process. We utilize intraoral radiology as a valuable diagnostic tool to determine overall health of the root structure, and to identify any abnormalities that may not be seen in a visual exam. Intraoral radiology helps us to address all potential concerns at once and alerts our team to any areas that may need future attention.
To effectively manage pain and ensure patient safety our team utilizes the following protocols and techniques:
- Safest anesthetic protocols
- Advanced patient monitoring
- Appropriate use of antibiotic to reduce risk of infection
- Effective pain management protocols
- IV fluid support
- Pre-anesthetic bloodwork
- Heat support
