Family Pet Hospital has the luxury of having two fully equipped dental suites in the building, which allows us to perform more dentals at a time. At our clinic Dr. Kate Lupton and Dr. Tathiana Anacleto have taken a strong interest in all dental procedures and have begun to offer root canals, which is a great alternative to extractions. By doing root canals instead of extractions we can maintain jaw stability and prevent future extractions while remaining aesthetically pleasing to the owner. Root canals are most commonly performed on canines and carnassial teeth but can be performed on any type of teeth. Please consider this option next time your pet has a broken tooth or another problem where a Root Canal could fix it.
*Both veterinarians offer a full mouth cleaning and dental x-rays, along with the root canal procedure.*
