Accidents happen. As a dental specialty practice, we see the full spectrum of oral and facial injuries. Jaw fractures can occur due to blunt force trauma, rough play with other animals, dental disease or bone disease. Injuries to the mandible or maxilla can have consequences for how your pet’s teeth and jaws can be used to chew and play for years to come.
At Animal Dental Clinic, our surgical options for fracture repair are as diverse as the injuries we see. With intraoral radiography and CT capability, we are able to diagnose fractures, plan our approach and perform surgical repairs quickly and efficiently. Dr. Battig and her specialty team have training in various surgical and minimally invasive techniques, and often are able to provide a more conservative approach for repairing many fracture types. This increases your pet’s comfort, and often provides you, the owner, with a manageable post-operative care plan. Our distinct approach also treats dental injuries as part of a comprehensive plan for overall patient comfort and recovery.
