Veterinary Dentistry – Clean teeth and healthy gums are essential to your pet’s health. Infections are common in the mouth because they can go undetected for long periods of time. Our veterinary staff regularly performs oral exams, dental cleanings, and periodontal care as part of our comprehensive pet health care.
Unfortunately, signs of dental problems are often subtle, and these problems may go undetected for months or even years. Pet Medical Center of Edmond’s veterinarians recommend regular dental examinations to keep pets healthy. Your pet’s yearly physical examination is a great opportunity for a dental checkup.
Dental problems, if left untreated, can often lead to larger systemic problems due to oral bacteria entering the bloodstream and damaging the kidneys, heart, and liver. Pet Medical Center of Edmond, Oklahoma, offers excellent veterinary dentistry services from experienced, qualified veterinary professionals.
Dental radiography is one of the most important diagnostic tools available to a veterinary dentist. Dental radiographs allow the veterinary dentist to examine the internal anatomy of the teeth, the roots of those teeth, and the bone that surrounds the root. Dental radiographs allow us to provide a high level of dental service to your pets.
We take intra-oral radiographs using small radiographic film or a digital sensor placed inside the pet patient’s mouth. These intra-oral radiographs provide superior quality for examining individual teeth or sections of the jaws compared to standard-sized veterinary radiographs. Because veterinary patients need to be still when the radiographic film or sensor is placed in the mouth, pet patients must be anesthetized or sedated when we take dental radiographs. The radiation risk to the patient from taking dental radiographs is minimal.
Pet Medical Center constantly strives to grow in the knowledge and technology necessary to provide the best possible health care to your pet. Please contact us to schedule your pet’s oral evaluation.
Brushing is always best! It must be done at least three times per week to achieve great results. Most pets can be trained to accept toothbrushing, and many come to enjoy it. The key is to make it a big deal bonding time for you both. Pet toothpaste comes in many flavors that pets love, like vanilla, mint, and poultry.
We recommend all of these items to benefit your pet’s dental health:
