Prevent Disease with our Veterinary Dentistry Services
Pet dental care procedures begin with an oral examination of your furry friend’s mouth, by our pet dentist, to evaluate the severity of tartar and plaque buildup. X-rays may be necessary to assess the health of tooth roots below the gum line as well as the jaw. Because we are unable to see dental disease which occurs below the gum line, a comprehensive cleaning of your pet’s teeth is performed under anesthesia to remove all tartar and plaque which is much like having your own teeth cleaned during a visit to your dentist.
Approximately 80% of dogs and cats, over the age of three, are diagnosed with some form of dental disease with periodontal disease leading in the top 10. Periodontal disease contains bacteria that may reach other parts of your pet’s body and cause damage to the kidneys, liver, and heart. The results could be severe, if not fatal, to the overall health of your pet if left untreated.
Have your pet’s teeth checked by our cat or dog dentist sooner if your furry friend presents the following:
Retained Baby Teeth or Extra Teeth
Loose or Broken Teeth
Loose or Broken Teeth
Drooling or Abnormal Chewing
Weight loss due to difficulty chewing
