Keep Your Puppy's Mouth Healthy

The importance of dental cleanings

0ur doctors and staff guide you through the steps for scheduling a dental cleaning or procedure. Learn more about our processes below – designed to keep things simple and comforting for you and your pet!

It Starts at the First Visit

Dental health starts when your pet is a puppy. At the first veterinary visit our doctors perform an oral exam looking for abnormal teeth, malocclusions or abnormal bites, missing or broken teeth and inflammation of the teeth or gums. Any of these conditions may be causing your new pet discomfort.

Why is dental health important?

An unhealthy, infected mouth is a painful mouth. This can affect your pet’s demeanor, appetite and overall health. Periodontal disease, fractured, missing and abscessed teeth are common in dogs.

Our goal is to maintain a healthy mouth for your pet, and when necessary, restoring a diseased and painful mouth to one that is clean, healthy and pain free. Signs of dental disease include bad breath, discolored teeth, calculus, fractured teeth, loss of appetite, drooling and bad breath.
