Why Pet Dentistry Matters

Regular dental cleanings play a pivotal role in extending your pet’s lifespan. By addressing issues such as bad breath, tartar buildup, tooth decay, and gingivitis, we not only enhance your pet’s oral hygiene but also reduce the risk of more severe health complications, including heart disease and bacterial infections.

Symptoms that Indicate Your Pet Needs Dental Care

  • Persistent bad breath
  • Excessive drooling
  • Difficulty chewing or loss of appetite
  • Yellow or brown deposits on teeth
  • Swollen or bleeding gums
  • Loose or missing teeth

If you notice any of these signs, schedule a dental evaluation for your pet promptly.

Our Pet Dentistry Services Include

Comprehensive Dental Cleanings

Our experienced veterinarians perform thorough dental cleanings while your pet is under full monitoring, ensuring a comfortable and stress-free experience.

Professional Examination

We meticulously examine your pet’s mouth for any signs of dental issues or abnormalities, discussing any findings with you and recommending further treatment if necessary.

Fluoride Treatment and Gingival Barrier Sealant

Each dental cleaning includes a fluoride treatment and a specialized gingival barrier sealant to provide added protection against tartar buildup and gum disease.

Home Dental Care Education

We provide guidance on home dental care practices to help you maintain your pet’s oral health between professional cleanings, reducing the risk of dental problems in the future.

When to Seek Pet Dental Care

Regular dental check-ups are recommended for all pets, but it’s especially important to seek dental care if you notice any of the following signs:

  • Persistent Bad Breath: Foul breath can indicate underlying dental issues such as periodontal disease or tooth decay.
  • Changes in Eating Habits: Difficult chewing or eating reluctance can signal dental pain or discomfort.
  • Visible Dental Problems: Any visible signs of dental issues, such as discolored teeth, swollen gums, or loose teeth, should be addressed promptly.

Addressing these symptoms early on can prevent the progression of dental disease and ensure your pet enjoys a lifetime of good oral health.
