Dental Care

Why is your pet’s oral care so important?

According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease by the age of three. Bad breath, plaque build-up, excessive drooling, sore or bleeding gums when eating or chewing, and decreased appetite are signs that your furbaby’s teeth may require veterinary attention. The average cat or dog needs a scale and polish every 18 months! Some even need it every year! We perform dental scaling and polishing on a routine basis. We do dental radiographs before every dental procedure. 

We offer cleaning, scaling, and polishing:

Usually done under anesthesia, this allows our team to clean under the gum-line where periodontal disease is found. This includes polishing of the teeth and scaling the gingival pocket (the subgingival space between the gum and the root). Afterward, we will polish your pet’s teeth to smooth enamel scratches that may attract bacteria.
