Dental health is an important part of your pet's care, and we recognize the three components of good dental health:
1) Prevention: Preventing a dental problem is always better than having to treat it. There are several things we recommend as part of your pet's preventative dental health plan.
Chews/Treats- we recommend and carry OraVet Chews, one of the few dental treats that is actually clinically proven to reduce plaque and improve breath.
Brushing the teeth- Considered by many veterinary dental experts to be the best way to keep the teeth healthy, we recommend and carry pet specific toothbrushes and toothpaste.
Dental Diets- Certain prescription veterinary diets like Hills T/D are very helpful in cleaning the teeth and gums.
Routine Dentals- One of the best ways to keep your pet’s mouth healthy is to schedule routine cleanings to remove plaque and mild infection before they cause health problems.
2) Diagnosis: We are one of the few local veterinary clinics with dedicated digital dental radiography. This means, we can take x-rays of the teeth just like a human dentist. The advantage of this is that broken and infected teeth can be treated more thoroughly with less risk of recurrence, and diseases that begin under the gums can be diagnosed and treated earlier.
3) Treatment: With the aid of our dental x-ray capability, the doctors are able to perform extractions, biopsies, routine teeth cleanings, and many other dental procedures.
