The Importance of Animal Dental Care

You already know how important it is for humans to maintain proper dental hygiene and to visit a dentist regularly. Your teeth and gums play a big factor in how you eat, communicate, and feel. Animals have much the same needs when it comes to their teeth and gums as well.

Procedures like regular animal, dog, or cat dental cleanings allow you to keep track of your pet’s health. Gums and teeth are the breeding grounds of bacteria, which causes tooth decay. If left unchecked, these problems can lead to cavities and gum disease, which can make your pet miserable--and even influence other health conditions.

Animal dental care should be part of your pet’s regular health care regimen. Not only does it allow your pet to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Routine screenings can also provide early notice of serious health conditions, like abscesses, cancers, and pet-specific illnesses. By paying attention to your pet’s oral health, you give them the opportunity to improve their quality of life.

Healthy Mouth, Healthy Pet

Oral health is very closely tied to your pet's health. We offer dental procedures based in our animal hospital. Maintaining healthy teeth and gums prevents local and internal infection, oral pain and lack of appetite. A pet with a healthy oral cavity will live a happier, healthier and, most often, longer life. We provide:

  • Complete oral evaluations (gums, teeth, tongue, palate)
  • Dental prophylactic cleanings
  • Dental radiographs
  • Treatment for periodontal disease and tooth extractions
  • Oral mass removal and biopsy
  • Pain free teeth trimmings in Rabbits
  • Instruction and demonstration on home care to keep teeth clean and healthy longer
