ORTHODONTICS : BRACES FOR DOGS AND CATS
Breshears Enterprises Inc Collaborator
LANCE CANINE TOOTH
Malocclusions that cause tooth on tooth or tooth on tissue damage need to be resolved. Providing patient comfort and preventing further problems is the goal in treatment. This young Sheltie has multiple problems with contact.
“Braces” or orthodontic devices can be placed in some patients to move teeth to avoid extraction.
A normal bite is the result following 4 weeks of movement and selective extraction of an incisor.
BASE NARROW CANINE TOOTH
Base narrow canine teeth result in trauma to the hard palate.
This patient has both lower canine teeth digging into the palate tissue.
You can see the trauma caused by the lower canine teeth here
Following a nerve block, a groove is placed in the tissue to create an incline. A composite is bonded to the lower canine tooth to allow the tooth move into the correct location when contacting the groove.
The composite is removed in 3-4 weeks and the patient’s palate trauma is resolved.
"I can’t thank Dr. Beckman enough for his mentorship and devotion to developing our dentistry skills. I never thought I’d be able to do the procedures that I have, and in a remote community, it’s a joy to see my patients benefit from that.”
“Hey Brett, Your passion for teaching veterinary dentistry, and the lessons I learned from you, gave me the knowledge and confidence to educate and provide my clients the best oral care for their pets. Now, as an educator, my clients are DVM students, and everyday I get to pass on lessons I learned from you.”
Greg Wolfus, DVM
"Attending Dr. Beckman’s canine dental wet lab was the single most valuable CE I had experienced in my then 10 years as a veterinarian. I was already doing fairly good dentistry, was using dental x-rays and had good technicians, but Dr. Beckman taught me how to utilize those tools to be a better practitioner and to be more profitable.”
Dr. Geoffrey Adams
Pasco Animal Hospital, New Port Richey, Florida
“Dr. Beckman’s Canine and Feline Dentistry seminars include relevant, practical and engaging lectures, interspersed with hands-on experience performing full-mouth extractions in dogs and cats. Dr. Beckman’s team is friendly, fun, and extremely knowledgeable. Annie Mills LVT, VTS (Dentistry) does a stellar job organizing the events, making for a smooth and enjoyable learning experience.”

“Dr. Beckman, the quizzes/ case studies/ your image library and the presentations have been simply wonderful. I just wanted to thank you and let you know you are making a big difference for me and many other veterinarians and their patients.”

“Dear Dr. Beckman, You are filling a gaping hole in the veterinary field for those of us who want to be GPs and practice high standard dentistry by providing the Veterinary Dentistry Academy. This is probably the best CE money I have ever spent! You really have condensed and streamlined years of my scattered study into such a compact, user friendly program.”
Lisa Goldburg, DVM
Boca Raton Veterinary Clinic
“Dr. Beckman thanks again for an amazing conference in Indianapolis! We have been doing X-rays in lateral recumbency and they were hit or miss if they would turn out. Using your technique my tech took the full mouth X-ray series one time only and it was perfect. So excited!”
Lauren Tassone, DVM
Prairie State Veterinary Clinic, Orland Park, IL
“Hi Brett, I have attended many lectures and labs and the AVDC forum and consider myself an experienced general practitioner in the field of dentistry. I am now finished the extraction webinar. I would like to tell you that your webinars are outstanding. They have refreshed my skills in areas that needed refreshing and they have helped me improve my extraction skills and flap making in ways I didn’t think possible. Thank-you. Every veterinarian should be required to take these webinars before they practice dentistry.”
