If you've noticed yellowing of your pet's teeth, bad breath, bleeding or broken teeth, something isn't right. Your pet's oral health is directly connected to their overall health. If you are noticing issues, it could be as simple as tarter buildup. However, it could also be as serious as periodontal disease, a medical condition that can spread infection throughout your pet's entire body.
In addition to brushing your pet's teeth at home (daily, please), we also recommend scheduling them for regular dental cleanings in our office. We have trained Dental Technicians who are excellent at identifying any issues and giving your pet a thorough cleaning.
Rest assured knowing that we use only the safest sedation products to ensure that your pet's dental care will be handled in the most efficient, effective and comfortable way possible.
Together we'll work hard to help your pet achieve a clean, healthy smile for life!
