State-of-the Art Dental Care and Cleanings
The development of plaque varies from cat to cat and dog to dog, but it is widely acknowledged that 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of oral disease as early as the age of three. Some animals are more prone to dental disease and, for these cats and dogs, annual teeth cleanings are warranted. Pet dental cleanings closely resemble what you experience at the dentist, but for reasons of safety, the process is performed under general anesthesia. During dental procedures, we will take detailed digital x-rays to ensure that other riskier or painful conditions are not present (abscesses, oral tumors, resorptive lesions, etc.).
