HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN IT’S TIME FOR YOUR PET’S TEETH TO BE CLEANED?

Not sure you can remember your pet’s last cleaning? Typically, you should bring your dog or cat in for a dental exam and cleaning every year. If your pet’s dental cleaning schedule has fallen by the wayside, you can compensate by booking an appointment now.

Clues that your pet is experiencing dental issues that require intervention are:

  • Mouth pain
  • Bad breath
  • Scratching at mouth
  • Broken teeth
  • Sores in the mouth

Benefits of a dental cleaning for your dog or cat

dripping-springs-texas-cat-dentistry

Dental disease includes issues like swollen gums (also called gingivitis) and loose teeth caused by infected gum tissue. As you can guess, these conditions are uncomfortable for pets, leaving them unable to eat properly and be more at risk for diseases of the heart, liver, and kidneys. During a dental exam, our staff takes a thorough approach to diagnose and treat dental disease and work with you for an effective treatment plan.

Benefits of your pet receiving a dental exam at Springs Veterinary Care:

  • IV and inhaled anesthesia - For your pet’s comfort, our dental services are performed under both IV and inhaled anesthesia. This allows us to examine your pet’s mouth, tooth by tooth, for abnormalities while keeping them safe.
  • Digital dental radiographs - X-rays allow us a deep, accurate look at your pet’s teeth and supporting structures. They are the only way to visualize disease lurking beneath the surface of the gums.
  • Vital monitoring -  Our state-of-the-art Cardell® Veterinary Monitor is used to check your pet’s vital signs safely. All dental patients have 2 team members that work in conjunction with our doctors to monitor patients closely.
  • Cleaning and Extractions - We remove plaque and tartar and polish the tooth surface. If needed, your pet's loose, decayed, or broken teeth will be removed to improve their health and comfort.
