Dentistry and Dental X-Ray
Dentistry is just as vital in animals as it is in humans, and is a major contributor to improving overall health and well being. Tartar build up and infection on their teeth can contribute to systemic infections, kidney and liver disease, and can even affect heart conditions. Broken or loose teeth are extremely painful, and can turn into an abscess if not treated.
Preventative dental care, especially in small dogs, is extremely important for their quality of life.
We offer full care dentistry, including dental x-rays, cleanings, and tooth extractions. All of this is done under a general anesthetic, which allows us full access to the mouth and ensures that your pet doesn’t feel any pain. If we need to do extractions, your pet will receive a local anesthetic to numb the area so that they don’t feel anything when they wake up!
The simplest way to keep your pet’s teeth healthy is to brush them at home, or provide dental food. Just a plain toothbrush with water can be enough to keep tartar build up under control. Dental health is often overlooked, but it is one of the most important things we can do for our pets!
