Our Dental Service provides professional dental cleanings and whole-mouth radiographs for dogs and cats. Additionally, we provide advanced dentistry such as tooth extraction, periodontal and endodontic therapies, and oral and maxillofacial trauma repair. While encouraged, referrals are not necessary.
Periodontal disease is the most common disease in adult dogs and cats, and it is entirely preventable. According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, more than 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats develop periodontal disease by the age of 3. As animals are adept at hiding their pain, you might not be able to tell that your pet has broken or infected teeth.
Infection or systemic disease (such as hypothyroidism, feline leukemia virus, feline immunodeficiency virus, feline calicivirus, pregnancy and renal disease) can also worsen oral health. This is due to a reduction in the local immune system and poor wound repair and tissue regeneration. Studies have shown significant relationships between periodontal disease and cardiac issues, kidney failure and liver disease. Animals deserve dental care, too!
