We are proud to offer non-anesthetic style dental cleaning as well as full service anesthetic dental service with oral dental radiographs (x-rays) and extractions as needed.
Our dental technicians strive to provide clients with information about pet dental health care, giving you the pet owner the expertise to identify the several stages of dental disease, as well as advising you on treatment options and at home care.
Our specialized technicians are not only exceptionally skilled at performing high quality non-anesthetic dentals, they gain the trust and respect of even the most timorous of patients. Alongside our licensed veterinarians, our technicians identify dental pathology that would otherwise go unnoticed, possibly leading to not only further dental pathology but also affecting internal organs such as the heart, lungs, liver, or kidneys.
Anesthetic Dentals are necessary in cases of advanced dental disease, infection, broken or abscessed teeth.
Warning Signs of Dental Disease
- Bad breath or halitosis: Unbrushed teeth are breeding grounds for bacteria reproduction. Increasing levels of unsavory bacteria result in plaque attaching to the teeth causing an unpleasant odor in your pet’s mouth.
- Plaque build-up: The sticky yellow, brown, or black deposits on teeth where bacteria multiply.
- Inflammation of the gingiva or gums: The red, swollen, bleeding, and/or painful gingival tissue that manifests in mouths with rapidly increasing bacteria levels.
- Tartar Formation: The culprit for advanced levels of periodontal disease whereby plaque calcifies around the gumline contributing to the suffocation of the gingiva, tooth decay, and possible bone loss.
- Drooling, dropping of food, difficulty eating, loss of appetite, and fractured or loose teeth are all factors that could be contributing to your pet’s dental discomfort.
