The most popular restoration in veterinary dentistry is the "all metal crown" and strong, abrasion resistant, and biocompatible. They require minimal tooth reduction and no special handling or cementation protocols.
PCDL offers Non-precious crowns, Titanium Milled Crowns, Full Cast Crowns, and a variety of alloys including surgical steel and gold.
tooth colored restorations
Tooth colored crowns offer a more natural look than metal crowns. Although they may not be as durable as an all metal crown, it can be desirable to give up a little strength in return for a less threatening appearance.
PCDL created the CaniZ milled Zirconia restorations. These are really strong because they are milled to full contour and do not require a layer of veneering porcelain, thus reducing the amount of tooth reduction. Zirconia restorations can be cemented like a conventional metal or porcelain fused crown. Due to their natural appearance, Zirconia crowns are ideal for zoo animals and show dogs. These Restoration are strong enough for use on maxillary fourth premolars.
The use of implants in veterinary dentistry has evolved from anchors used to position therapeutic appliances, to single tooth replacement in all areas of the mouth.
Due to the unique morphology and space limitations some cases can only be restored with the use of custom fabricated endosseous implants. These are designed from CBCT or x-ray images and dental study models. Most custom dental implants are machined from titanium and sent out for bio coating.
The primary objective of veterinary orthodontics is to provide a comfortable bite for companion animals. Traumatic malocclusions can be painful for pets and painfully expensive for owners.
The most common malocclusions are base narrow canine teeth. Our go-to method is with cast metal, telescopic bilateral incline planes. Some cases may be intercepted and corrected with a direct bonded acrylic incline plane.
Anterior cross bites are common malocclusions. They can be corrected with the following appliances that PCDL creates: Button Bands, Expansion Devices, and Labial Arch Bars too.
