 Advanced & Referral Dentistry

advance-referralThrough our own staff and our association with Sydney Pet Dentistry, Gordon Veterinary Hospital is a major centre for advanced and referral dentistry in Sydney.

Dr Christine Hawke offers referral dentistry for our own clients through Sydney Pet Dentistry. Christine is also a member of the Dental Chapter of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists and is a Resident in Small Animal Dentistry with Dr David Clarke.

Digital Radiography

Our state of the art digital x-ray system is used in our advanced procedures and is a crucial tool in the diagnosis of, and treatment planning for many problems such as periodontal disease, feline odontoclastic resorptive lesions, fractured or abscessed teeth and much more. Digital xrays require less radiation than conventional film, and remove the waiting time associated with processing films as the image appears on the computer screen within seconds.

Endodontics

Endodontics is the diagnosis and treatment of disease within the tooth. Broken, damaged and infected teeth are a source of chronic pain for animals. Endodontic therapy is an alternative to difficult or traumatic extraction of important teeth such as the canines and carnassials, allowing function to be preserved. Root canal therapy is generally the preferred option, however in some cases (especially in young animals) vital pulpotomy and direct root capping procedures may even save the tooth’s life.

Orthodontics

Due to genetics, trauma, disease or sheer bad luck, some pets have malocclusions (where the normal alignment of the jaws and teeth is disrupted). In some cases this is only a cosmetic issue, and treatment is not generally recommended for these pets. However, these problems can cause life-long pain if teeth are traumatising the oral tissues or other teeth. We can offer several solutions, from extraction or crown reduction (tooth shortening) through to use of orthodontic appliances.

Absolutely love the service here. I switched from other Vets to this Vet as the staff here are quite attentive and really care about your furry baby! I have basically seen most of the Dr's here and all of them so far have been fantastic, friendly and fun to speak with! Easy to locate and enough parking available! 5 Stars indeed!

We found a stray, agitated dog in front of our house last night. We phoned but got no help from the Council ranger who gave two options: tie him up in front yard overnight or "let him loose, he'll find his own way home" :( So we phoned Gordon Vet: they stayed open a few minutes so we could run him up and he could have a bed and dinner. Thank you Gordon Vet Hospital, hope he gets home soon!!! :)
