Pet dental services are critical to prevent your cat or dog from developing dangerous bacteria and periodontal disease.

Comprehensive Pet Dental Care

Our veterinary practices have a full range of dental care services that can help your pet be happy and healthy. We treat every pet patient with the compassion and attention you would expect. These services include the following:

  • • Teeth cleaning and examination
  • • Treatment for gum diseases 
  • • Surgeries for damaged teeth (extractions)

Understanding Your Pet's Teeth Cleaning

Before cleaning your pet's teeth, you will discuss its medical history with our veterinarians. A blood test will be performed to ensure your pet is the right candidate for anesthesia. Unlike humans, this process is necessary so that our vets can perform x-rays and clean thoroughly above and below the surface of the gums. Using anesthesia also ensures your pet will have a comfortable experience, reducing the likelihood of any anxiety. Excess plaque and tartar are removed from your pet's teeth, and then they are polished to prevent future buildup. We'll look for any indication of infections and suggest further treatment for damaged teeth.

What Happens After Your Pet's Teeth Are Cleaned? 

Our veterinarians will review the procedure with you and answer any questions you have about your pet's oral health. We may prescribe antibiotics should an infection is discovered or if we feel your cat or dog is susceptible to one. Your pet is generally able to be back to normal with eating or drinking habits within a few hours. At home, you can do your part to promote healthy teeth and gums with regular brushing or chew toys and treats.
