Dentistry in
Cats and Dogs

Dental prophylaxis allows us to scale and polish your pet's teeth. Healthy teeth help decrease the risk of bacteria causing problems in the kidneys and the heart, as well as provide a clean mouth free of pain from tooth root abscesses and other oral diseases. Following scaling the teeth are polished and sealed to help slow further problems. The image to the right shows a mouth after dental cleaning.
