Pet Dental Care
Good dental hygiene can increase your pet's health, vitality, and well-being and add additional years to his or her life. Regular dental check-ups and teeth cleanings with your Paddock Lake veterinarian help ensure your pet leads the best life possible.
If left untreated, dental disease can not only be painful and inhibit proper nutrition, but it can also lead to serious systemic issues that may threaten your pet's health before symptoms are noticeable. It is estimated that more than 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats develop tooth and gum disease by the age of three years.

We believe that the centerpiece of good dental care is a complete oral exam with dental x-rays followed by a thorough cleaning. Dental cleanings include ultrasonic scaling followed by polishing and a mouth rinse, the combination of which is designed to remove plaque and slow its buildup.
Your pet's dental prophylaxis includes:
-X-rays of all teeth
-Oral examination under anesthesia
-Diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease
-Supra and subgingival scaling
We chart your pet's teeth at every cleaning. We evaluate his or her teeth and do any necessary extractions.
