Dental disease is the most prevalent disease in dogs and cats. Every dog or cat has some form of disease by the age of three. We recommend an oral exam at least yearly to evaluate your pets teeth. This is usually performed with your pets yearly wellness exam. We then recommend if it is time to have your pets teeth cleaned.
We not only clean your pets teeth but we perform full mouth radiographs with dental procedures(recommended). Dental radiographs allow us to fully examine your pet for all disease below the gum line. 70 percent of the tooth is below the gum line. It can look perfectly normal from above gum line and be completely diseased below. This is the most thorough way to keep your pet’s kidney’s, heart, and liver healthy.
