Comprehensive Pet Dentistry Services

Our skilled veterinary team offers a range of pet dentistry services to keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy:

Pet Teeth Cleaning

Professional cleaning removes tartar buildup, preventing gum disease and tooth decay.

Dental Examinations

Thorough dental exams help detect early signs of dental issues, allowing for prompt treatment.

Dental X-Rays

We utilize advanced dental X-rays to assess your pet’s oral health beneath the surface, identifying hidden problems and providing targeted treatment.

The Importance of Dental X-Rays

Dental X-rays are an essential part of our pet dentistry services. These X-rays allow us to evaluate your pet’s oral health beyond what is visible during a routine examination. They help us detect hidden dental issues such as tooth root abscesses or fractures, assess bone health, and plan precise treatment tailored to your pet’s specific needs.
