What is veterinary dentistry and who should perform it?

Veterinary dentistry includes the cleaning, adjustment, filing, extraction or repair of your pet’s teeth and all other aspects of oral health care.

The process begins with an oral exam of your pet’s mouth by our in-house expert veterinarians. The Radiographs (x-rays) evaluates the condition of your pet’s jaw and tooth roots below their gum line. Because most dental disease occurs below the gum line, where you can’t see it, a thorough dental cleaning and evaluation are performed under anesthesia. Dental cleaning includes scaling (to remove dental plaque and tartar) and polishing which is similar to the process used on our teeth during your regular dental cleanings.
