Dental Care

When it comes to caring for your own teeth and gums, you're on top of things. You brush and floss daily. Visit the dentist at least once a year. What about your dog or cat? Do you afford the same level of care and attention to his or her oral health?

The fact is regular dental care isn't just something that humans need to worry about. Keeping your pet's teeth and gums healthy is equally as important. Routine cleanings can help prevent tooth decay and also protect your pet against periodontal disease, a serious medical condition than can spread infection throughout the entire body and even shorten his or her life. The good news is, through regular dental care - both professional and at home - you can help your companion beat the odds.

VCA PineRidge offers comprehensive, professional pet dentistry services to keep your companion smiling pretty, from routine and preventive care to the advanced treatment of existing oral health problems. We use modern and safe ultrasound technology to clean each tooth thoroughly - above and below the gum line. Our experienced dental technicians will then polish your pet's teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface that is more resistant to plaque buildup.

For those animals that are already experiencing a problem with their teeth or gums, we are available to deliver a wide variety of advanced dental care services. Our hospital is outfitted with cutting edge, digital dental x-ray equipment and advanced dental surgical equipment for extractions and other dental procedures. It's never too late to start caring for your pet's oral health.

Finally, we will work with you to show you how you can help your loved one maintain a healthy mouth year-round. Our friendly, knowledgeable technicians would be happy to provide demonstrations of proper home brushing techniques and offer advice and guidance on what products you can use to support good oral health for your pet.

Don't let your four-legged friend become a statistic. Let's work together to help them achieve a lifetime of good dental health.
