Dental health is very important for the overall wellness of your pet. Yearly dental screenings are done during your pet’s wellness examination. The veterinarian will determine the stage of dental disease and may recommend a dental cleaning. Most pets will need their teeth cleaned several times in their life, but some much more often. Often, due to fractured teeth or infected roots, teeth may need to be extracted. Our state of the art dental equipment is used for cleaning and also extracting teeth. Many owners become wary of having their pet’s teeth extracted. It’s important to remember that a fractured or infected tooth is painful and the pet will feel much better once it is out. Dogs and cats rarely have difficulty eating without their teeth.
