Dentistry

At the cat hospital we offer dentistry services, which consists of a comprehensive oral health assessment and treatment.  

Cats are great at hiding pain, and they may develop dental issues without you knowing. Regular dental exams will help detect any issues early and provide treatment before these issues become worse. 

Dental disease can affect your cat's overall health, including changes to their internal organs such as the heart, liver and kidneys.

If your cat needs a dentistry procedure 

For a complete oral exam, your cat will be placed under general anesthesia. Bloodwork is required beforehand (can be done morning of) to assess organ function and the safest medications to use given your cats health status. During the procedure, a technician and Dr. Baran will:

  • Radiograph all quadrants of your cats mouth

    • Assessing for roots and surrounding bone structure​

    • Over half of your cats tooth structure is below the hums and can only be evaluated with x-ray

  • Conduct a thorough exam of all 30 of your cats teeth, the gums, roof of the mouth, inside of the cheeks and back of the throat

  • Dr. Baran will determine the appropriate treatment for each tooth by combining the visual exam with the radiographs

  • Any painful or diseased teeth will be removed

  • Appropriate pain medication will be administered during the procedure, and dental blocks will be used for any extractions

  • A technician will scale and polish the remaining teeth 

You will receive a call after the dental procedure with an update on your cat. Your cat will be sent home with pain medication and will come back in a week for a dental recheck to assess healing.
