68% of cats and 78% of dogs have been found to have dental problems. Infected teeth are painful, eventually cause tooth loss, and may lead to infection of internal organs. This is why it’s very important to maintain your pet’s dental health. A significant way to do that is to have regular scaling and polishing done by your veterinarian. This is similar to what your dentist does on your own teeth. The majority of dental disease is below the gum line, so we have a state-of-the-art dental suite with specialized oral radiograph machine to detect problems not visible to the naked eye. It’s also important to brush your pet’s teeth at home, so we provide free teeth brushing lessons by one of our skilled technicians upon request.
