Your pet’s dental health can be crucial to quality of life.  As dental disease and infection not only affects your animal’s mouth, causing pain, discomfort and loss of appetite, it can also have a negative effect on your pet’s vital organs.  Preventative health care is key. 

We use digital dental radiology (filmless image capture) to assess tooth root structure below the gum line to rule out abscess, absorptive lesions and retained roots. With modern ultrasonic equipment and hand instruments (similar to human dental procedures), each tooth is cleaned thoroughly - above and below the gum line. Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque build-up. We promote home care such as dental diets, water additives and brushing teeth to aid in maintaining your pet’s proper oral health.
