Your pet’s dental health is just as important as yours or any member of your family. Dental health is a fundamental part of preventative health. By the age of 3, nearly 70% of cats and 80% of dogs have some form of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is both painful and preventable. An important goal for dog and cat parents is proper dental care to help their pets retain their teeth. Left unchecked, periodontal disease can ultimately result in the spreading of bacteria throughout their body, possibly resulting in damage to the kidneys, liver and heart.
Regular professional dental care is essential to maintaining your pet’s health. We perform routine dental cleaning and polishing which can help avoid and prevent more complicated oral pathology.
With sedation dentistry, we can adequately remove all the tartar above and below the gumline with our modern ultrasonic scaler, apply fluoride treatments to strengthen enamel and reduce sensitivity and then polish the teeth to provide a smooth lustrous surface that is more resistant to plaque buildup in the future. If any extractions are necessary, we take pre-emptive pain relief seriously with local nerve blocks and numbing during surgery and provide analgesics for home use.
