Veterinary Dental Services

Professional Dental Treatment and Oral Surgery

When it has been determined that your pet is in need of professional dental services, their care will consist of dental cleaning to remove the tartar, plaque, and the buildup of calculus. This buildup is extremely dangerous to leave on the surfaces of your pet’s teeth. The toxins in this buildup can seep into the bloodstream, causing serious health conditions in organs such as the heart, liver, and kidneys. Additionally, periodontal disease sets in first with gingivitis or red gums, and if left to continue will result in lost teeth, pain, and tooth root abscesses. Professional dental cleanings are performed under anesthesia to ensure that a thorough cleaning and assessment of the oral cavity can be accomplished.

The Progression of Veterinary Dental Disease

When your pet has dental disease, the progression of the disease, gingivitis, and buildup can be monitored. We invite you to examine the images below to identify which grade of dental buildup your pet has reached. We encourage evaluating your pet and talking with us about the results.

At-Home Dental Care

At-home dental care is critical to keeping your pet’s mouth clean and preventing dental disease. We provide a number of pet dental health products, including toothpastes and products to help reduce buildup, at our practice and our team can educate you on the basics of at-home dental care. If you have any questions about your pet’s needs, please contact our team for assistance.
