dental1Dental Care-The Gateway to Your Pet's Health

How often do you visit your dentist? For most people, the answer is twice a year for an exam and a thorough cleaning. What about your pet? Do you brush their teeth at home, like you do your own? Have they ever had a full dental cleaning? For people and pets, dental health can be an important indicator of overall health.

Proper dental care is essential to your pet's wellness. Is your pet not eating well lately? Have you noticed that your pet has bad breath? These signs could indicate a problem with your pet's teeth. Dental disease can also lead to more serious conditions if left untreated. Bacteria in the mouth can get into the blood stream and cause serious infections. Red swollen gums and infected teeth can be a source of pain for your pet.

How can you keep your pet in top condition? By taking care of their teeth the same way you take care of yours: with regular at home brushing and an annual professional dental cleaning.

Dental cleanings for pets are performed while the pet is under general anesthesia to allow for a thorough evaluation and cleaning. We will use ultra-sonic scaling to remove any plaque or tarter buildup, as well as hand scaling for the more delicate areas of your pet's teeth and gums. We finish with a high-speed polish and complete mouth rinse.
