Why is Pet Dental Care Important?

Pet dental diseases can lead to more serious problems with the animal's heart and other organs.  It can also be painful and prevent your pet from chewing their food properly.  This is why it is important that your pet's teeth be examined annually to detect any problems that might arise and to help keep your dog or cat's mouth optimally healthy.

What Conditions Are Screened for by Our Veterinarian?

Just as people can have specific dental problems, so can your pets. When you bring your pet to our hospital, our veterinarian will check for some or all of the following conditions:

    • Palate defects
    • Jaw breaks or fractures
    • Misalignment of the pet's bite
    • Tumors or cysts inside the mouth
    • Infections
    • Abscessed teeth
    • Periodontal disease
    • Broken roots or teeth
