Keeping your pet’s teeth clean is a vital component of their overall health. A lack of consistent brushing can lead to bad breath, tartar buildup, and gum infections. In severe cases, periodontal disease can occur which may lead to bleeding, inflammation, bone loss, and heart disease.
This is why regular teeth brushing and annual dental exams are important for pets (and humans too). Periodontal disease is completely preventable, and our dentistry experts are ready to provide complete oral health care for your pet to avoid needless complications.
Our Clear Creek pet dentistry treatment begins with a dental check-up during your pet’s wellness exam, followed by in-depth oral treatment as required. Our veterinary dental services include:
Professional cleaning with anesthesiaClear Creek Animal Hospital performs full-service dental cleaning, scaling, and polishing with anesthesia. Using anesthesia helps your pet relax during the procedure so our experienced vets can thoroughly examine your pet’s teeth, gums, and mouth. We use warm IV fluids and carefully monitor your pet’s vitals during the dental exam. Your pet recovers under a warm blanket while we discuss any additional procedures that might be necessary.
Dental x-rayDuring every dental exam at Clear Creek, dental x-ray technology is used to check your pet’s teeth and gums for any infection or signs of periodontal disease. Dental x-rays are non-invasive, and the digital images, which are produced in seconds, provide a clear look at what’s happening inside your pet’s teeth and beneath their gumline. This ability to see any hidden problems is essential to diagnosing oral disease and providing swift medical treatment.
