Dentistry

Including Dental Radiography

Dentistry is often one of the most overlooked facets of veterinary medicine but is of paramount importance. As part of the physical examination, your pet’s teeth will be checked for evidence of infection or trauma. Where necessary, we may recommend a dental prophy (cleaning). This is where your pet will be anesthetized to facilitate a proper oral examination including assessment of gingival pockets. It is at this point; we’ll contact you and discuss which teeth will either undergo a cleaning, extraction or restoration depending on the level of disease present. Dental radiography is available to assess individual areas of the mouth, check for cancerous changes as well as assess extractions or repairs.
