Regular dental maintenance keeps your dog or cat’s teeth clean, healthy, and free of the pain and discomfort that can result from unattended damage and decay. Black Creek Veterinary Hospital’s professional pet dental care services include professional solutions to all your dental worries. We’ll also be happy to offer our advice on the many small ways you can work to keep your pet’s teeth healthy at home. Here is a quick video demonstrating how to brush your dog’s teeth.
Professional Pet Dental Care for Cats & Dogs
Trained technicians oversee our dental wellness services for each patient. When your pet comes for a dental appointment with us, they’ll be treated to a full evaluation and cleaning:
- Complete oral exam to evaluate the health of your pet’s teeth, gums and jaw.
- Thorough ultrasonic cleaning to remove plaque, tartar and build up above and below the gum line.
- Extractions of painful or damaged teeth and simple gingival biopsies as needed.
We perform all cleanings using general anesthesia for the safety and comfort of your pet. This allows our veterinarians to provide a much more thorough cleaning than would otherwise be possible, achieving the greatest benefit while eliminating pain.
Taking Care at Home
Our veterinarians work closely with you to develop a good at-home dental care routine for your pet. Even if your dog or cat is especially resistant to having his or her teeth brushed, we’ll be happy to talk it over and offer valuable tips on how to do it successfully at home.
We carry plenty of in-home dental care products here at the hospital, where you can easily pick up toothbrushes, toothpaste, oral rinses, chews, sealants, and even specially formulated dental maintenance foods after your pet’s appointment.
Call us with any questions you may have about our dental wellness options for your pet.
