Dental Care for Pets

Healthy gums and teeth are an important part of your pet’s general health.

At Talleyville Veterinary Hospital, we provide treatment to your pet if he or she is showing signs of periodontal disease as well as conduct professional dental cleaning for maintaining healthy teeth.

Dental cleaning for pets includes:

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

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

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