When you bring your companion to Valley Lyons Veterinary Hospital, we take digital x-rays for a detailed picture of your pet’s dental structure. In addition, our in-house diagnostics make getting to the root of a problem quicker, which is more convenient for you and your pet.
For your animal’s safety and comfort, we perform thorough assessments and teeth cleanings under sedation. This makes the procedure faster and more effective.
Is Regular Teeth Cleaning Important for Your Pets
Regular cleanings are essential for your pet’s health to remove buildup above and below the gum line and prevent the development of dental disease. Left untreated, this condition can lead to chronic pain, inflammation, and other health problems, including in organs like the heart and kidneys.
Common symptoms of dental issues include:
- Bad breath
- Broken or lost teeth
- Baby teeth that have not fallen
- Tooth discoloration
- Abnormal chewing
- Excessive drooling
- Loss of appetite
- Pain, bleeding, or swelling in the mouth area
Suppose our providers detect any dental issue that requires additional treatments or medication. In that case, we create a personalized care plan to improve your pet’s health. We provide you with post-procedure instructions for their recovery or specific recommendations to optimize your animal’s oral care at home. In addition, we can suggest oral care products for everyday use. We also offer animal nutritional counseling to adjust your pet’s diet to support healthy teeth and gums.
Routine dental examinations and cleanings support your animal’s oral and general health and allow us to notice any issue early. This will enable us to provide timely care for your pet and minimize future complications.
Your pet’s good dental health helps:
- Prevent gum disease
- Keep their internal organs healthy
- Improve their breath
- Preserve their teeth
- Reduce any dental pain
