Pacific Veterinarian Hospital Dental Care Services

Our dental care program for dogs and cats focuses on maintaining optimal oral health and preventing dental issues that can affect overall well-being of animals.

During a dental visit, our veterinarian conducts a thorough examination of your pet’s teeth, gums, and oral cavity to assess for any signs of dental disease, such as tartar buildup, gingivitis, or tooth decay. Dental x-rays may be taken to evaluate the health of the tooth roots and surrounding structures.

Professional dental cleanings are typically recommended to remove plaque and tartar accumulation from the teeth, both above and below the gumline. This process, performed under anesthesia, involves scaling to remove plaque and tartar, followed by polishing to smooth the tooth surfaces and reduce the risk of future plaque buildup.

If we identify any issues, such as periodontal disease or fractured teeth, appropriate treatment will be recommended. This may include tooth extractions, periodontal therapy, or other dental procedures to address the problem and alleviate any pain or discomfort.

In addition to professional cleanings and treatments, our veterinarians provide guidance on at-home dental care practices to help maintain your pet’s oral health between dental care visits. This may include regular tooth brushing, dental chews or treats, and specially formulated dental diets.

By addressing dental issues proactively, we help pets live longer and happier lives free from dental pain and discomfort.
