Dental Procedures

 

Dental care is as important for dogs and cats as it is for humans. In fact, it’s vital for their good health. In addition to decaying teeth and destroying bone, bacteria that have built up in the mouth can spread to vital organs (heart, liver, kidneys), causing serious, if not life-threatening, medical problems. Bad breath and tartar buildup are the more obvious warning signs, but you can’t always recognize the deterioration in its beginning stages, and animals can’t tell you they are in pain.

That’s why regular dental health evaluations are a necessary component of your pet’s wellness program. Current dental exams provide a baseline for reference in case of future dental problems, and professional cleanings help prevent painful dental disease that can lead to other health issues.

If your pet is experiencing any of these symptoms, please let us know so we can perform a thorough evaluation of your pet’s dental health and provide necessary treatment.
