How We Perform Oral Exams and Other Dental Procedures
University Veterinary Hospital uses state-of-the-art teeth cleaning equipment for every patient. This includes IM3 air compressed low-speed and high-speed machines, a 42-12 subgingival ultrasonic scaler, and Schick digital radiography.
We obtain full-mouth radiographs during every Oral ATP procedure. Digital radiographs are essential for a comprehensive assessment of your pet’s oral health, providing excellent resolution and precise detail of any existing or potential problems occurring below the gum line. Radiographs help to facilitate the diagnosis and timely treatment of unhealthy and painful oral conditions such as abscessed teeth, bone resorption, and jaw fractures.
If your dog or cat is living with potential periodontal disease or some other severe oral condition, contact us at (318) 797-5522. Our skilled veterinary team will answer all your questions and perform a detailed assessment to make sure your pet receives the care they deserve.
