Annual dental exams and cleanings are recommended to protect your pet from many health problems and help them maintain a healthy and clean mouth.
Disease prevention is a major component of our dental care. Periodontal disease is by far the most common disease of the mouth in our veterinary patients. Foul breath is the hallmark clinical sign for this disease. Once it is present, periodontal disease is progressive. The removal of tartar and plaque both visible and below the gum line is essential in the prevention of this disease.
While your pet is under anesthesia, our veterinarians examine every tooth individually and decide on diagnosis and proper therapy. Digital dental radiographs are utilized when needed. Tartar and plaque are removed, and then detailed polishing and sealant application complete the procedure similar to what is done in human dentistry.
Constant patient monitoring and supportive therapy are utilized to ensure comfort and safety for your pet. We are able to perform all types of tooth extractions, periodontal procedures, tooth restoration, and tumor removal. The comfort of our patients is a top priority and pain management is tailored to your pet’s needs.
