Dental Care

We strongly believe that prevention is best when it comes to good oral hygiene. Unfortunately, many owners do not have enough awareness or time, and we treat animals all the time for tartar buildup and periodontal disease. In most cases, this means dental extraction.

Schedule your pet’s appointment for a dental exam and treatment now. Our clinic also offers everything you need to take care of your pet’s oral health: food for tartar prevention, toothbrushes and accessories and dental treats.

What dental care services does your hospital offer?

  • Digital radiography
  • Comprehensive examinations
  • Cleaning (scaling and polishing)
  • Dental extraction
  • Tooth brushing advice

    Why does my pet need dental X-rays?

    We take dental X-rays to check for abnormalities, teeth that may need to be removed and anything that can’t be spotted during a simple visual examination. About 40% of oral diseases can only be detected with the help of X-rays. Pets feel just as much pain and discomfort from dental problems as humans do, and X-rays are one of the main ways we can keep them healthy.

    What are the most common dental problems in pets?

    The most common dental issues and illnesses are abscesses, tooth fractures, gingivitis, periodontal disease, tooth resorption and dental tartar.

    What are the signs that my pet might have a dental problem?

    Contact your veterinarian for a dental consultation if you observe one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Bad breath
  • Chewing differently
  • Difficulty eating
  • Heavy drooling
  • Red or bleeding gums
  • Tooth loss or loose teeth
  • Rubbing or showing signs of pain around their mouth

    Why is it so important to brush my pet’s teeth?

    Brushing your pet’s teeth removes plaque buildup that can turn into tartar in as little as three days. It can worsen and lead to gingivitis or other dental problems within two weeks. If left untreated, the infection can spread to your pet’s internal organs and affect their entire immune system in the most serious cases.

    We therefore recommend brushing your pet’s teeth at least once a day, with a pet-friendly toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush or a rubber finger brush. Ask our team for their top tips on making teeth cleaning as easy and effective as possible!
