Atlas of Dentistry in Cats and Dogs 1st Edition
by Markus Eickhoff
As a veterinarian and dentist in one, Dr. Markus Eickhoff has practiced high-level canine and feline dentistry for over 20 years. He now shares his fund of experience in this book with over 1500 images.
What equipment do I need? What treatment options are available and how do I perform them? This book provides detailed, systematic and generously illustrated instructions.
Over 1500 illustrations present details of many fascinating cases, allowing the practitioner to follow procedures in detail. The myriad practical tips and step-by-step instructions for performing common dental procedures provide security when performing dental treatment on small animals. Supported by the images, Dr. Eickhoff introduces the practitioner to commonly performed procedures such as the extraction of root fragments or the placement of fillings.
The focus on dogs and cats allows not only conventional treatment options but also less common ones to be presented in detail. Benefit from the latest insights for treating exceptional cases such as cleft palate or dental ankylosis.
Dentistry requires the use of diverse medical devices and instruments, and dentists must be prepared to oﬀer a wide range of options to meet the specific requirements comprising highly variable parameters and conditions with suitable equipment. They also need the proper expertise in dental procedures, which extends far beyond the normal range required for a general practitioner. Thus, dentistry in human medicine has become a medical discipline in its own right.
In veterinary medicine, however, such a development is unlikely, so appropriate dental treatment for cats and dogs will remain in the domain of veterinarians, who have to become specialized. This book does not aim to enable all veterinarians to treat all dental conditions, but rather to acquaint them with the problems and possible treatments. This in turn can permit veterinarians to oﬀer the proper treatment or refer the client to a specialist; this approach can prevent years of suﬀering and pain and initiate a healing process.
