About Dental Consultations
health and quality of life can be seriously affected by disease or
injury to the teeth and oral cavity. As with humans, oral health
is an important factor that must be maintained. Periodontal
disease, inflammation of the gums and tissues surrounding the
teeth, are the most common diagnosed disease of cats and dogs. It
will occur without routine home care and dental cleanings by
family veterinarians. Periodontal disease, however, is not the
only aspect of a patient's oral health that should be considered;
oral tumors, malocclusions, tooth and jaw fractures, and cleft
palates are conditions that require advanced surgical and dental
care as well.
Consultation with our Board Certified Veterinary Dentists will provide veterinarians with the best treatment plan and dental recommendations available.
Dental consultations are submitted, as other types of consultations, through our GCVTelemedicine site. To submit cases, your clinic must be registered. Once registered, submitting cases is easy and only requires logging into the clinic account.
Routine Dental Consultation
A board certified veterinary dentist will provide a detailed interpretation of dental radiographs. Photographs of the teeth and/or area of the oral cavity of interest are welcome. Each report will include the findings, conclusion, and dental recommendations made by the veterinary dentist.
