Dental disease is the most common disease seen by veterinarians. In fact, studies have shown that over 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of periodontal disease by age 3. Periodontal disease is a progressive condition that starts with plaque build-up on the teeth and eventually leads to infection, gum disease, and tooth loss.
Dental examinations and cleanings are an essential part of preventive healthcare for pets. During a dental examination, our veterinarians will assess your pet's oral health and discuss any concerns we may have. We will also recommend a treatment plan, if necessary.

Regular dental cleanings are an important part of your pet's overall health care. Just like humans, pets can develop tartar and plaque buildup on their teeth, which can lead to gum disease and other serious oral health problems. Bacteria from the mouth can also enter the bloodstream and cause problems in other organs, such as the heart.
That's why our veterinary hospital offers comprehensive dental care services for your pet. We use state-of-the-art equipment to clean your pet's teeth and identify any issues early on. We also work with you to develop a at-home dental care routine that will keep your pet's smile healthy and bright.

Dental radiography, also known as dental x-rays, is a diagnostic tool used by veterinarians to evaluate the health of your pet's teeth and jaws. This type of imaging allows our team to detect problems that cannot be seen with the naked eye, such as tooth decay, fractures, and tumors.
Dental radiographs are an important part of your pet's preventative healthcare routine. We recommend that all patients have at least one set of x-rays taken every year. For pets with existing dental problems, more frequent radiographs may be necessary.
At our hospital, we use state-of-the-art digital radiography equipment. This technology provides clear images with minimal radiation exposure for both you and your pet.
If you have any questions about dental radiography or your pet's oral health, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are always happy to help!
