Pets can get cavities, just like people! As a pet owner, it's your responsibility to maintain your pet's oral hygiene through smart lifestyle choices and professional veterinary care. Your Montrose veterinarian can help you take care of your pet's teeth! By performing dental examinations, dental cleanings and oral surgeries, we fight pet periodontal disease. We also help pet owners do their job, by answering their questions and educating them about the symptoms of poor dental health. Recognizing the symptoms of pet dental disease can help you keep your pet's teeth clean and gums healthy.
Your Montrose veterinarian and team can perform the following dental services for pets:
Comprehensive dental exams. We'll check your pet's teeth and gums for plaque and signs of dental disease. If we find signs of dental disease, we'll make recommendations for treatment. We recommend that most pets get their teeth checked at least once per year, but some pets need to get dental exams twice annually.
Pet teeth cleaning. We'll clean your pet's teeth and remove the plaque. Once the teeth are clean, we'll polish the enamel. This will help keep your pet's teeth clean later on. After the appointment, we'll send you home with before and after pictures of pet's teeth, so you'll be able to see the improvement! We'll also provide you with a pet dental kit to help you keep your pet's teeth clean. Cat and dog teeth cleaning appointments should be performed at least once per year.
Tooth extractions. Teeth that become infected need to be extracted. Tooth extractions can improve your pet's comfort and prevent the spread of infection to other parts of the body.
Cavity fillings. We'll check your pet's teeth for cavities. If we discover that your pet has cavities, we'll use fillings to fix the problem.
Digital x-rays. We'll use digital x-rays to diagnose your pet's dental problems quickly and accurately.
As a pet owner, you can do the following to help keep your pet's teeth and gums healthy:
Tooth brushing. Pets need to have their teeth brushed with special toothbrushes and toothpaste formulated for pets.
Regular inspections. Inspect your pet's teeth for signs of pet dental disease.
