Nothing feels better than clean teeth! Pets, like humans, suffer from a number of dental diseases. Our staff can assist you in ensuring your pets' gums and teeth stay healthy.

Dental disease can lead to problems elsewhere in the body, including the heart and the kidneys. These diseases can be prevented by proper oral hygiene, which may involve brushing your pets' teeth, as well as dental procedures performed by veterinary staff. Do not worry if you are not comfortable brushing your pets' teeth! We will do our best to support you with this if needed.

Prophylactic dental care at our clinic includes:

  • full oral inspection- including probing teeth for pockets, cavities, gingivitis and other abnormalities
  • dental x-rays
  • scaling and polishing the teeth
  • removal of painful or infected teeth
  • using nerve blocks in order to decrease pain and discomfort
