By: Kathy Istace, Published: December 2021, FileType: PDF
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. Breed Predispositions to Dental and Oral Disease in Dogs

It also contains information about more advanced skills, including administration of regional nerve blocks and periodontal treatments, as well as details of the aetiology and treatment of common oral conditions.
