Does your pet have a bad odor coming from their mouth? This could be one of the first indications of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is the most common disease of dogs and cats. Most pets do not show any signs of discomfort in their mouths, unless the dental disease is severe. You wouldn't normally think that your pet's dental care is important. They're just teeth right? Actually, periodontal disease can lead to diseases including liver, kidney and heart disease or can aggravate a pre-existing condition. Daily brushing, dental chews and toys, and preventative professional cleanings can keep your pet's teeth healthy for much longer!
We now have the capability of taking full mouth intraoral digital dental radiographs during the dental procedure. This shows us a picture of what lies below the gum line and also disease processes such as: bone loss, tooth abscess, oral masses, tooth resorption, just to name a few! These radiographs will also show us the start of the disease process and we can guide you in the care needed to prevent further infection of the mouth.
Our trained technicians perform all of our dental prophylaxis, taking care to perform thorough oral exams, probing and charting of all the teeth, full cleaning and polishing, and taking full mouth digital dental radiographs. We have upgraded our dentistry equipment including:
