Countless pets suffer in silence with undetected dental pain and infection, and proper dental care adds substantially to their quality of life. If you have ever experienced for yourself the effects of dental problems you would surely realize how important it is to have your pet examined regularly for dental care needs. We know that pets can live longer, healthier lives if oral health care is managed and maintained throughout their lives. In fact, in avoiding the effects of chronic pain and infection, proper dental care may add as much as five quality years to your pet's life.
Dental care should be started early in life, and our staff can guide you in determining what is best for your pet. Furthermore, vigilance on an owner's part can catch the odor, and telltale signs of progressive dental disease.
We perform routine check-ups on your pet's teeth and gums, and we also recommend routine cleanings to maintain overall dental health and should start at the first signs of dental disease. This allows us to closely examine your pet's mouth, check for lesions or abnormalities, remove tartar and plaque, and polish their teeth.
To perform the dental cleaning your pet will be put under anesthesia to prevent them from moving around and to allow the doctor to perform a full examination and cleaning. We make sure that your pet is comfortable and perfectly safe during the entire process. While your pet is under the doctor examines the mouth, gums, tongue, cheeks, and teeth. This can reveal any cases of lesions, gum disease, tooth decay, or other problems. When these are discovered, they can usually be handled during the treatment. After examining the mouth the doctor will complete a full cleaning of the teeth and polish them thoroughly to give your pet a healthy, attractive set of teeth.
After the anesthesia wears off your pet is usually back to their normal self within minutes. Call us today to schedule a dental cleaning for your pet.
