Dental disease, in pets, is often overlooked since the signs can be difficult to recognize and because our pets instinctively avoid showing us that they hurt. With a dental exam and good dental care, we can prevent many painful issues. With our CT Scanner, we can identify and address painful and infectious issues below the gum line. Often, these issues are treatable and others are preventable with early detection.
The anesthetic protocol is individually tailored for your pet’s needs based on age and other pertinent health issues. Prior to any procedure requiring anesthesia, we always recommend bloodwork to evaluate your pet’s health status. Even with an otherwise healthy pet, bloodwork is a essential part because, it can screen for any underlying health issues.
We use modern and safe ultrasonic scaling equipment to clean each tooth thoroughly – above and below the gum line. Our veterinary technicians polish the teeth to create a smooth surface that is more resistant to plaque buildup. Finally, we can provide education and samples of dental products to help keep your pet’s teeth healthy in the future.
