Pet Dental Care

For Every Day Smiles

Pet dental care is not only about oral health. Keeping your pet’s teeth and gums healthy is essential for overall wellness. At Sweet Home Veterinary Hospital, we offer complete pet dentistry services to enhance your companion’s wellness and ensure they keep smiling.

Why Your Pet Needs Dental Care

There are many health needs to consider when caring for your pet. Unfortunately, pet dental health is often overlooked. Pet dental care is about more than trying to decrease smelly breath or brighten yellowed teeth. Taking good care of your pet’s teeth can help prevent dental diseases such as periodontal disease, gingivitis, and tooth decay.

Any oral issues can cause pain and discomfort to your beloved companion, leading to difficulty eating their food or even opening their jaws. If your pet’s teeth or gums become infected, bacteria can enter their bloodstream and affect vital organs such as the heart, kidneys, and liver. Emergency treatments and dental procedures that may result can be expensive, but they can be avoided through preventative pet dental care. Consider pet dentistry a necessary part of your pet’s wellness routine and save them (and you!) the pain that can result from poor oral hygiene.

Preventing Painful Mouths One Tooth at a Time

We offer a full range of pet dental care services at Sweet Home Veterinary Hospital to keep your pet’s teeth in good shape so they can enjoy their favorite food and treats. Our care starts with pet dental exams, during which your veterinarian will examine your pet’s teeth, gums, and overall mouth for signs of dental disease or oral concerns such as plaque build-up, cracked or broken teeth, tooth decay, gum inflammation, and jaw pain. Our veterinary team can also offer at-home dental care advice on brushing your pet’s teeth and recommendations for food, treats, and toys that lead to healthy teeth.

In addition to basic exams, we recommend regular professional pet teeth cleaning to remove plaque and tartar build-up, which our experienced veterinarians perform while your dog or cat is under anesthesia. Should your pet require a tooth extraction, we can perform that procedure at the same time. We also offer pet dental X-rays to get a closer look at your pet’s teeth under the gumline and spot any decayed teeth that require removal. We prioritize your pet’s safety during all pet dentistry procedures, so they return to you smiling a happier smile.
