Pet Endodontic Disease in Toledo, OH
WHAT CAUSES ENDODONTIC DISEASE?
There are many issues that can cause the tooth’s durability and health to be negatively affected. Some of these issues include: trauma, tooth malformations, and bacterial periodontal infections. Teeth are fractured from external trauma (i.e. aggressive play, automobile impacts) or from biting inappropriate objects (i.e. real bones, hard nylon toys, rocks, fences, cages). Trauma to the tooth can also injure the pulp beyond its ability to repair. If the pulp is directly exposed at a fracture site, the affected tooth will need endodontic treatment or extraction.
WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS TO TREAT ENDODONTIC DISEASE?
The pulpitis may be reversible or irreversible, depending upon the severity of the insult. Minor trauma generally causes reversible pulpitis with the tooth surviving. Irreversible pulpitis is a result of inflammation blocking blood flow to the root of the tooth which generally results in the “death” of the tooth. The most common cause of irreversible pulpitis is when a tooth is fractured, exposing the pulp tissue to bacteria. When this happens, the inside of the tooth fills up with infected material through the openings in the tip of the root and into the jaw.
The facility is top notch but is surpassed by the staff. They were all so attentive, friendly and professional! This was my first visit with my new puppy but I have had dogs all my life and was particularly impressed by this group. I would highly recommend them!
Love everything about this place! So loving and caring toward your babies and I wouldn’t trust anyone else. Glad we found such a wonderful veterinary office.
Have recommended this vet to many and I love the staff.
LOVE the doctors and staff at West Suburban. They take such good care of my three fur babies: Max, Roxy & Sophie.
I had an amazing experience with Dr. Thompson and his staff. Very friendly and reassuring in a high stress time. They fixed my fur baby right back as good as new. Extremely grateful!
The BEST OF THE BEST!!! Kept me updated throughout the day on my dog’s surgery/recovery. Very caring staff!
