Dental hygiene is an important part of your pet’s health because dental disease can be associated with other serious health problems such as heart disease and kidney disease. But how do you know if your pet has a healthy mouth? Let us examine your pet’s teeth and gums to help determine if there are any dental issues you should know about. After a brief visual examination, we may recommend a more detailed examination (which requires sedation), a dental cleaning, or at-home dental care options.
If your pet is diagnosed with dental disease, we have a dental machine to clean and polish their teeth. We also have the tools needed to extract any broken, diseased, or damaged teeth that could be causing your pet pain. Because 60% of dental disease occurs beneath the gum line, we have a special dental X-ray unit to see any changes not visible on examination. All of these tools help ensure your pet has a healthy, pain-free mouth.
Even if you think your pet’s teeth and gums are fine, we can offer expert advice to help you keep them that way! Dental health shouldn’t be taken for granted.
