Approximately half of adult cats are affected by tooth resorption. Choosing between extraction, crown amputation with gingival closure or follow up only can be challenging. Approximately 60% of cat teeth are located subgingivally. This case-based packed presentation will review old and newer (CBCT) tools to help decide what is best for you patients.

Speakers: Dan Carmichael, DVM, DAVDC
Dental problems in dogs and cats are among the most common conditions seen in small animal practice. The first step always and involves oral examination of the awake patient. Treatment of dental problems requires an accurate diagnosis, and this cannot be accomplished until the patient is anesthetized and a complete intraoral examination as well as dental radiographs are obtained. For many dental disease conditions, the best treatment may be prevention.

In this presentation, we will discuss canine periodontal disease, and dental fractures. We will also consider feline tooth resorption, and feline gingivostomatitis. The focus will be from a clinical perspective: how to arrive at a diagnosis, and how to best treat based on that diagnosis.

Speaker: Dale Scherl, B.S., PhD
Periodontal disease is the most prevalent disease in cats and dogs, spawning a myriad of products advertising oral health benefits such as reductions in dental plaque and calculus (tartar). Given the diversity and magnitude of the market for these dental products, it has become increasingly important for consumers to be able to differentiate products that have a true oral health benefit from products that don’t. To this end, controlled dental efficacy testing methods have been developed that quantify plaque and calculus attenuations as a function of the use of foods, treats, toys, etc. While these testing methods do a good job of accurately and reproducibly quantifying these substrates, each has unique characteristics that make it the best choice in specific situations.

This presentation will review the fundamentals associated with dental efficacy testing, followed by information about the most used testing methods, and the situations for which each is the best choice. It will also present information about the Veterinary Oral Health Council, an independent organization whose package seal signifies that a product has achieved or exceeded a threshold of efficacy. Hill’s technologies and product offerings will be presented as examples throughout.

Speaker: Mary L. Berg, BS, RVT, RLATG,VTS(Dentistry)
As veterinary health professionals, it is our job not only to promote dentistry but to educate our clients about the importance of good oral health. How can we do this? Talk with them about the importance of good oral care by expressing the fact that the mouth is a mirror to the body. Start this education process with your clients at the first puppy or kitten visit and continue at every visit throughout the pet’s lifetime. Explain that the mouth is a mirror to the body. Methods to promote the importance of oral health will be discussed.
