Why Pet Dental Care Is Key

Maintaining the oral health and hygiene of your pet is important because a clean and healthy mouth contributes to your pet’s overall wellbeing and free of secondary infections and disease. At West Park Animal Hospital, we recommend dental care as a part of your pet’s routine care plan, which consists of our pet dental services. We offer everything from simple wellness exams to ultrasonic dental scaling performed under anesthesia by a veterinary technician. Other services include:

  • Pet fluoride
  • Routine pet teeth cleanings
  • Veterinary tooth extractions
  • Diagnostics
  • And more.

High-Tech Treatments for the Best Care

At West Park Animal Hospital, utilize the latest technology for treating and caring for your pet, including the following:

Digital X-rays

The dental care X-ray unit can help us diagnose and develop a treatment plan for oral health issues in your pet. The digital X-ray system works quickly and accurately to minimize the time your pet spends under anesthesia and produces more precise results than traditional X-rays.

CT Scan

The vTRON CT scanner provides a highly detailed view of pets’ teeth, making it an invaluable tool for veterinary dental care. Unlike traditional dental X-rays, the vTRON CT scanner captures comprehensive, three-dimensional images of the entire tooth and surrounding structures.

Ultrasonic Scaling

Ultrasonic scaling treatments can remove plaque much faster than hand scaling, greatly improving the health of your pet’s teeth and gums while again minimizing discomfort and the time they spend under anesthesia.

Pet Care Tips for Oral Hygiene

Preventative medicine extends to your pet’s mouth, too. Dental diseases, particularly animal periodontal disease, are common in pets, especially dogs. However, pet owners can prevent such oral diseases by feeding them a crunchy diet and taking advantage of dental treats, diets, and toys. Brushing your pet’s teeth each day is also highly recommended, and it’s easier than you may think. Using veterinary toothpaste only, slowly introduce your pets to the following process:

  • Day 1: Offer a taste of the toothpaste.
  • Day 2: Offer a taste again, and run your finger along the top gum line.
  • Day 3: Use a toothbrush instead of your finger.
  • Day 4: Continue this slow introduction with the bottom teeth.

Eventually, you will be able to brush all of the teeth quickly, working from the back to the front. If your pet is impatient, focus on the upper back teeth, where periodontal disease is often the worst. All along, don’t forget to give your pet plenty of praise!
