Dentistry Prevents Pain and Prolongs Life!
We perform all our dental care using the latest protocols and recommendations which include patient monitoring, intubation, full mouth radiographs, IV fluids pre and during anesthesia, local nerve blocks as well as injectable drugs for pain control and patient warming while anesthetized. We have an excellent safety record and have performed dentistry on patients as old as 20 years of age.

This tooth appears normal with only a small pocket in the gum before x-ray. Radiographs show a severe abscess of the tooth root with destruction of the jawbone from infection; without x-ray guidance it would be easy to break the jaw when extracting this tooth.
This tooth is not yet loose but there is severe bone loss and an abscess forming around the roots.
This canine (fang) tooth looks fairly normal with only dental tartar and some gum recession but x-ray shows an abscess around the root. This tooth will be loose and painful.
Cleaning alone is not enough
