Feline dental problems usually go undetected until their pain is so severe that they can barely function. Cats are known for hiding their discomfort and usually won’t show any signs until they are in the worst condition.

Cats experience a variety of dental diseases such as feline tooth resorption, tooth fractures, gum diseases and more. When these problems happen with your feline companion, feline tooth extraction may be necessary. However, we will try everything we can before offering the tooth extraction solution.

Pet Dental Cleaning

Pet-Dental-Care-MesAAnimal dental cleanings are performed under general anesthesia in order to properly and safely examine and clean the teeth. Most pets should receive a dental exam at least one time per year. This dental exam includes, supragingival and subgingival cleaning, polishing, intraoral evaluation and further periodontal therapy.

The initial treatment plan is set after the oral examination is complete. Your vet will discuss different options and then the client will be able to decide of the treatment plan that best suits their pet.

Pet Oral Exams

After your pet’s teeth have been adequately cleaned and polished, your vet will also perform an oral exam to make sure your dog or cat doesn’t have any signs of gum disease or other dental diseases.
