Dental Care

Dental health is a fundamental aspect of your pet’s overall well-being. At our clinic, we understand that a healthy mouth is key to a healthy body, which is why our comprehensive dental care services are designed to address and prevent oral health issues before they become more serious. Our dental care services encompass regular cleanings, thorough dental exams, and a range of procedures to treat conditions such as gum disease, tooth decay, and other oral health problems.


Following the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) guidelines, we emphasize the importance of anesthetized dental cleanings to ensure a thorough and safe procedure for your pet. Under anesthesia, our veterinary dental team performs a detailed cleaning, which includes:

  • Removal of Tartar and Plaque: Using specialized tools, we carefully remove tartar and plaque buildup from both above and below the gum line.
  • Polishing: After tartar removal, teeth are polished to smooth out any etches to minimize future plaque buildup.
  • Dental X-rays: We may take dental X-rays to evaluate the health of the jaw and tooth roots below the gumline.
  • Examination for Dental Diseases: The vet performs a comprehensive examination of the mouth for signs of dental diseases or issues that might require treatment, such as extractions or advanced dental procedures.

This approach not only cleans your pet’s teeth but also allows for the early detection and treatment of potential problems, preventing more serious health issues down the line.

At-Home Care for Your Pet’s Teeth

In addition to professional cleanings, at-home dental care is vital for maintaining your pet’s oral health. Here are some tips to keep your pet’s mouth healthy:

  • Regular Brushing: Brush your pet’s teeth daily with a toothbrush and toothpaste specifically designed for their species. This can significantly reduce plaque buildup.
  • Dental Treats and Diets: Offer your pet dental treats and consider a dental diet that helps reduce tartar buildup through mechanical action.
  • Dental Toys: Chew toys designed for dental health can also help reduce plaque and are a good way to keep your pet’s teeth clean.
  • Regular Mouth Inspections: Regularly check your pet’s mouth for signs of oral health issues, such as bad breath, swollen gums, or discolored teeth, and consult your vet if you notice any problems.

Combining professional dental care with diligent home maintenance can help ensure your pet’s mouth stays healthy, contributing to their overall health and happiness.
