An Introduction to Pet Dental Care

An Introduction to Pet Dental Care

Author: Kathy (Mayfield Veterinary Hospital, Canada) Istace Format: Paperback Release Date: 11/11/2021

Periodontal disease is one of the most common diseases observed by small animal practitioners, and it is not uncommon for the veterinary technician to be the first line in oral health assessment and treatment. Despite this, current dentistry training for veterinary technicians and nurses is often very limited. This book explains the causes, consequences, prevention and treatment of pet dental diseases including periodontal disease, fractured teeth, tooth resorption, dental malocclusions, oral masses, jaw fractures, and other oral conditions. It covers: * Instruction in essential skills such as dental cleaning, charting, radiography, and equipment maintenance. * Advanced skills such as the administration of regional nerve blocks and periodontal treatments. * The aetiology and treatment of common oral conditions. Improving competence in veterinary dental skills benefits technicians, veterinary practices, owners and their pets. Explaining pet dental diseases in a relatable way, this book allows veterinary staff to relay important dental information to pet owners in a way they understand. Providing solutions to help prevent and manage pet dental diseases, it outlines treatment options, outcomes, and post-operative dental care.

Manual of Diode Laser in Dentistry and Stomatology

Manual of Diode Laser in Dentistry and Stomatology

The diode laser is a versatile and effective solution for oral tissue care. The advantages are manifold such as: faster healing, reduced risk of infection, and postoperative complications. In addition, sessions are not stressful for patients due to their mini-invasiveness with reduced intraoperative and postoperative pain perception. Thanks to these benefits, the use of the diode laser is spreading and opens up new treatment possibilities in various areas of dentistry: from endodontics to periodontology; from oral surgery to aesthetic treatments such as teeth whitening. The book responds to the needs of those clinicians who seek specific and updated training on the use of the diode laser. An extensive set of images describes clinical applications in detail, offering professionals a comprehensive learning tool and a useful resource in daily practice. It is also possible to access videos on specific topics covered in the text from a smartphone or tablet via the QR codes printed inside this book.
