Week 1 – Introduction to oral examination
You will cover the systematic approach for performing a conscious oral exam. From there you will move on to the diagnosis of common oral pathology in your patients. Learn the techniques, tips and tricks in handling the patient during the oral exam, normal oral anatomy, and talk about what to look for during the oral exam. Never underestimate the power of a thorough oral examination during your consultation! After all, more is missed by not looking than not knowing.
Week 2 – Fractured teeth: To save or not to save?
Gain a better understanding of the treatment options for fractured teeth. From chips to full fractures, and even nerve root exposure. We will arm you with all the options and treatments appropriate for the related injury, because not all teeth can be “saved”.
Week 3 – Periodontal disease: the essentials
The most common oral pathology in dogs and cats and definitely the most important! It is essential for clinicians to understand the pathophysiology behind periodontal disease, its staging system, and the treatment options for each stage. We’ll bring it all together with a case study to discuss and conclude this session.
Week 4 – Let’s straighten up these Teeth: malocclusion
Gain a better understanding of the different criteria for “normal” occlusion and malocclusion classes in this session. Learn about different management options for base narrow canines as the “Kong ball therapy” is not for everyone. Plus you can learn about certain cases that may be appropriate for “doggy braces”.
