Routine cleanings and dental checkups are vital to the health and longevity of your pet’s life.. Veterinary dentistry is constantly progressing. Periodontal disease is the cause of about 75% of all dental problems. It is also the cause of 95 % of all bad breath cases.
At East Petaluma Animal Hospital, we offer a range of pet dental care services, including:
- Dental Examinations: These examinations play a crucial role in identifying dental disease and other potential issues affecting your pet's oral health. Following the dental examination, we will provide recommendations for further care based on our findings.
- Dental Cleaning: Our pet teeth cleaning services effectively remove plaque from your pet's teeth. After plaque removal, we meticulously polish the enamel, preventing food from adhering to it. We advise scheduling your pet's teeth cleaning at least once a year to maintain optimal oral health.
- Tooth Extractions: In cases of infected teeth, we may recommend tooth extractions to prevent the spread of infection and alleviate your pet's pain. While extractions are a last resort, we collaborate with pet owners to emphasize preventative care and avoid the need for extractions whenever possible.
- Tooth Bonding: Enamel defects can occur in pets' teeth. Our tooth bonding services are designed to safeguard pet teeth from enamel defects, ensuring their long-term oral well-being.
Preventative measures that you can do at home such as weekly brushing, dental diets, OraVet™ prevention gel, rawhide chews, Greenies®, and other bones will help prevent plaque and tartar buildup on the tooth surface.
