We offer preventative care and treatment for several types of health conditions, including pet dental care, parasite control, spay and neuter surgery, vaccinations, nutrition and behavior counseling, routine health exams, and more. Our dental services include teeth cleanings and dental surgery, including tooth extractions.
When Do Pets Need Tooth Extractions?
One of the common pet dental care requirements is tooth extractions, which is an important and beneficial dental care procedure when performed correctly. Not all veterinarians can perform tooth extractions, but our veterinarians are trained and experienced in this area. Tooth extractions might be required in cases where your pet suffers from severe periodontal disease, tooth resorption, tooth fracture, or other conditions. It is much safer and more comfortable for your pet to have no tooth than to have a painful tooth that can turn into a serious health issue. Routine teeth cleanings and dental checkups can help your pet avoid developing these issues.
At Hamilton Road Animal Hospital, we are highly experienced with procedures of tooth extractions. Along with the experience and skills of our veterinary team, we carry all the required equipment and instruments required for tooth extractions. We will administer anesthesia for the procedure. We may also recommend a follow-up visit after the tooth extraction as that helps us make sure your pet is not suffering from any side effects of tooth extractions.
For tooth extractions, each case can be unique, requiring a customized approach to the procedure. In some cases, there is no need for any incisions or bone removal. However, other cases might require complex surgery. Most tooth extraction procedures only have mild oral discomfort or bleeding. We will provide your pet with post-operative care after a tooth extraction.
