Dental Health

We know how important dental care is for your pets. That is why we developed a newly remodeled, dedicated dental suite for all dental procedures which includes advanced instrumentation for routine cleanings to specialized procedures.

How do I know if my pet has dental disease?

Bad breath, red or swollen gums, discolored or loose teeth, reluctance to play with chew toys, or pain when eating can all be signs of dental disease. However, often in the earlier stages you won’t notice anything amiss, which is why regular, annual physical examinations help us find dental disease early.

We take a comprehensive approach to assessing and treating your pet’s dental health. Under general anesthesia we perform a complete oral examination and take full mouth X-rays to figure out if any teeth are compromised enough to call for extraction. If extractions are necessary, then the affected teeth are removed, and a flap of gum tissue is sutured over the extraction site. Local “numbing” anesthesia is used to ensure pain management during and after the procedure. All healthy teeth have the tartar removed and are polished to smooth out the tooth surface which helps to prevent the tartar from coming back.

The two best ways to prevent plaque and tartar build up are

  1. Feeding a high-quality diet
  2. Brushing your pet’s teeth several times per week.
