Dental Health

A clean mouth is a happy mouth! Periodontal disease can lead to heart, liver, and kidney disease if left untreated. Many times it is difficult to detect a periodontal problem in pets until it is too late. Some of the signs include:

  • bad breath
  • loose teeth
  • bleeding, swollen gums
  • gum recession
  • tooth root below crown exposed
  • pain and discomfort
  • decreased appetite
  • foul-smelling discharge or pus

A thorough dental assessment and cleaning under general anesthesia will eliminate the source of bacteria and inflammation. Our in-house dental services include ultrasonic scaling, high speed polishing, radiography, tooth extractions, and oral surgery. Should the need for advanced endodontic procedures (such as root canals, vital pulp therapy) be required, a board certified veterinary dentist is available.
