Clean teeth and healthy gums are essential to your pet’s health. Dental disease is one of the most common health problem in dogs and cats. Most pets over the age of 3 have some form of dental disease. Bad breath is not a sign of good health in pets. Our veterinary staff regularly performs oral exams, cleanings and periodontal care as part of our comprehensive health care goals.
General Dentistry requires your pet to be under anesthesia for the procedure. We perform full physical screenings and bloodwork prior to surgical procedures to ensure that your pet is a good candidate for anesthesia. We also use pain management techniques that are appropriate for your pet’s age, breed, and current health status.
Dental problems, if left untreated, can often lead to larger systemic problems in your pet due to oral bacteria entering the blood stream and damaging the kidneys, heart and liver.
