Pet Dentistry

At Companion Pet Care, we believe good dental hygiene is just as important for pets as it is for humans. Dental disease is one of the most common diseases we see in pets throughout their lifetime. Did you know that 78% of dogs and 68% of cats over the age of three have some form of dental disease?

Imagine how your mouth would feel if you did not have any professional dental cleanings or did not brush your teeth every day? This is why professional teeth cleanings by our veterinarians plus at home brushing are as important for your pet as it is for humans.

Pet Dental Care at Companion Pet Care

We recommend regular oral examinations and dental cleanings as needed for all adult dogs and cats. During your pet’s wellness exam, we will visually examine your pet’s teeth and make appropriate dental health recommendations to you.

We have state-of-the art equipment and the expertise to care for your pet’s dental needs. Digital dental radiography allows us to examine the tooth and bone under the gum line. Ultrasonic dental scalers, and high and low speed hand pieces for drilling, cutting and polishing allow us to clean and polish your pet’s teeth. This removes the plaque that can lead to gingivitis and, if left unchecked, infection around the root of the tooth. Plaque, which is a buildup of bacteria, will develop into periodontitis. Periodontitis are pockets of severe and painful infections within the mouth around the teeth and gumline. Not treated, it can lead tooth decay and bone loss.

In order for us to properly care for your pet’s teeth, we use general anesthesia for all dental procedures. Using anesthesia for a dental procedure allows proper diagnosis and cleaning without any pain or discomfort to your pet. Please ask us if you have any questions or learn more about pet periodontal disease from the American Veterinary Dental College.

Signs of Oral and Dental Disease in Your Pet:

A good start to good dental care for your pet is for pet owners to recognize the signs of oral and dental disease in your pet:

Call us immediately to schedule a dental exam if your dog or cat shows any of these symptoms.

Brushing your Pet's Teeth at Home

Brushing your pet’s teeth once a day at home to prevent plaque and tartar buildup is important. At-home cleaning should only take a few minutes each day. We will be happy to teach you how to brush your pet’s teeth at home. Just give us a call or ask us during your pet’s next wellness exam.
