Small Animal Dental Care
Dental care is an important fundamental component of your pet’s health. With regular cleanings and at-home dental care, you can prevent plaque and tartar build-up on your pet's teeth, and prevent the onset of periodontal disease.
Clover Valley’s comprehensive, preventative dental services for dogs and cats includes a detailed physical examination, comprehensive dental cleanings with polishing and fluoride treatments, instructions and product recommendations for at-home dental care, and minor oral surgery such as tooth extractions.
Professional Dental Care for Pets
Before your pet’s dental treatment, we will use blood tests to confirm that your pet is a good candidate for anesthesia. Your pet will then be safely placed under anesthesia while we perform the dental exam and cleaning. During the entire procedure, a trained technician will carefully track your pet’s vital signs using an advanced monitoring system.
We use modern and safe ultrasound to clean each tooth thoroughly, above and below the gum line. Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface that is more resistant to plaque buildup. Fluoride treatments help in strengthening the enamel and reduces tooth sensitivity.
At-Home Dental Care for Your Pet
Regular home dental care will prevent the buildup of plaque on your pet’s teeth. Brushing your cat or dog’s teeth on a daily basis significantly reduces the buildup of plaque on the teeth. Plaque is an accumulation of bacteria that can lead to periodontitis if ignored. Periodontitis causes pain and chronic oral infections that will eventually loosen and destroy the teeth, possibly leading to bone loss.
