Veterinary Dental Services

Every service your family dentist offers is available for your pets.  Our focus at Animal Dentistry and Oral Surgery Specialists is to emphasize the services that improve comfort and eliminate pain for your pet.  Improving esthetics (appearance) is a minor goal of our services.

We offer a wide range of veterinary dental and oral surgery services to keep your pet companions feeling their best. 

Oral surgery represents the largest concentration of our pet dental cases. 

Typical veterinary dental cases we see:

  • Animal oral or dental disease requiring diagnosis, treatment, prognosis and prevention.

  • Evaluation for anomalous (abnormally developed) oral or dental structures and pet facial swellings (congenital cleft lip and palate, lymphatic, salivary and tooth anomalies such as enamel defects, enamel hypocalcification, hypomineralization or hypoplasia).

  • Metabolic, neurologic, oral medicine ("rubber jaw", enamel hypocalcification, neuropraxia, neuromuscular disease) or related disease processes.

  • Neoplasia diagnosis, staging, treatment and prognosis; (melanoma. fibrosarcoma, squamous cell carcinoma, osteosarcoma).  At our Milwaukee facility, we work closely with Dr. Reiman (board certified medical oncologist) to treat animals with oral cancers. 

  • Infectious diseases of dog & cat oral and periodontal tissues, immune mediated conditions ("CUPS"- chronic ulcerative periodontal syndrome), and inflammatory (gingivitis, periodontitis,"LPGS" lymphocytic, plasmacitic gingivostomatitis' faucitis, "FORLS" feline odontoclastic resorptive lesions) disease processes.
