Dental Care

Dental disease is one of the most common preventable diseases we treat. Over 80% of dogs and cats over 3 years of age have some degree of periodontal disease, and most pets would benefit from more frequent dental cleanings and evaluations.

We recommend home health care such as toothbrushing, use of sealants such as Oravet, dental diets such as T/d, and regular professional dental cleanings/treatments to control dental disease.

We offer dental prophylaxis, treatment of oral disease, extractions and digital dental radiography. If your pet requires more specialized treatment such as a root canal, we will refer you to a dental specialist.

All our dental procedures are done under general anesthesia. We utilize the best practices for safe anesthesia including appropriate drug selection for each case, proper pain management, IV catheter and fluids, gas anesthesia, warming devices, and blood pressure, ECG and pulse oximeter monitoring. A certified veterinary technician is present at all times to monitor all vital signs and help maintain a safe anesthetic procedure. We encourage pre-anesthetic diagnostic testing to reduce the level of risk associated with anesthesia. With accurate information, no pet is “too old” for anesthesia. We are eager to answer your questions and help you make the right decisions regarding your pet’s anesthesia needs.
