NGAP Dental Procedures: the Use Of Domitor Without Intubation

Domitor

You always know when a particular protocol that you like works well when you have the opportunity to use it thousands of times with no complications or problems, whether during the procedure or after it. At National Greyhound Adoption Program, we do not intubate during most dental procedures. I know that many vets will disagree with this protocol for fear that fluids would enter the dogs lungs. We do at least 1000 procedures annually using this protocol and it has never happened. We have been using Domitor for at least 10 years. Every greyhound has survived the protocol without complication. No greyhound has had post-operative issues and no greyhound has ever died.

Using Domitor to induce sleep on our patients, we are able to perform cleaning, polishing, laser related work on gum tissue, into pockets and on root exposed sensitive areas, bonding and even extractions of incisors in some cases.

We are the only facility that we are aware of in the world that uses a Biolase MD dental laser. We have two. It is a diode laser manufactured for the human dentistry market. It can do things that regular CO2 lasers cannot do, such as clean pockets out to depths of 9mm without burning the gum tissue or the tooth. It can also desensitize root exposed areas. Those areas can then be sealed and the potential of sensitivity is gone. Most of our procedures are based on human dentistry and their success on human patients who are in an upright position and awake and having no problems with ingestion of fluids during that procedure.
