Veterinary Dentistry Care

Dental Care For Dogs, Cats & Exotic Pets

Healthy teeth and gums are an important part of your pet’s overall health. At Windcrest Animal Hospital, our veterinarians provide professional dental cleaning for maintenance of healthy teeth and for treating your pet if showing signs of periodontal disease or other problems.

Dental cleaning for pets includes:

  • Cleaning of all the teeth using ultrasonic and hand dental scalers to remove dental plaque and tartar, which can cause periodontal disease.
  • Polishing to remove residual plaque and to delay future deposits of plaque and tartar.
  • Rinsing to remove debris before a final inspection.
  • Application of a plaque-preventative material or fluoride.
  • Evaluation of all teeth and gums to detect evidence of disease or injury.
  • General anesthesia during the procedure.

When accumulation of plaque and dental tartar with gingivitis or only mild periodontitis (bone loss around the tooth) is found, professional dental cleaning alone typically treats the issue effectively. In addition to preventative dental care, we can also do tooth extractions and other procedures if necessary. If our veterinary dentist finds abnormalities that require specialized attention, we will call you prior to doing additional procedures.

Regardless of the extent of your pet’s dental care needs, we’ll give you detailed recommendations for your dog’s or cat’s daily home oral hygiene.

Contact us today to schedule your pet’s dental cleaning. Our caring team of veterinarians, specialists, nurses, and support staff are here to help you keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy—and to give you something to smile about! And remember, we also provide care to maintain your pets health and treat them with the best modalities and technology available when they’re ill or injured.
