Dentistry

WHY is dentistry for pets so important?

  • Pain
  • Bacteria in the mouth can contribute to serious problems in other organs, like heart and kidney disease
  • Bad Breath 

WHAT do we do?

  • Digital x-rays and evaluation
  • Charting of teeth
  • Address cavities
  • Extractions
  • Nerve blocks to reduce pain after procedures
  • Extract/treat feline absorptive lesions
  • Treatment of dental abscesses
  • Aftercare and rechecks

WHY does my pet need anesthesia?

  • It would be dangerous if not impossible to work inside a pet's mouth while they were awake. Please see our Surgical FAQ

Feline Resorptive Lesion

This digital dental x-ray is an example of a feline resorptive lesion. The tooth on the bottom right has basically disintegrated, leaving the nerve exposed. This is a common and painful problem in cats. They continue to eat and act normal, so a dental exam is the only way to tell if your cat is suffering from these lesions.
