My Pets Dental

Perhaps the most nerve wrecking times we face involve surgery for ourselves or our pets. With this in mind it is our goal to assure you that we take every surgical and dental procedure seriously. We continuously monitor up to 12 parameters including your pet's heart, blood pressure, temperature,respiration, and the anesthetic agent. If your pet is under 12 weeks, or over 6 years of age we require pre anesthetic blood tests. In all other cases we strongly recommend pre anesthetic tests no matter how short the procedure.

Healthy teeth = less odor, better overall health, less oral discomfort.
Please do not underestimate the danger of unchecked dental problems in our canine and feline friends. The danger is a result of the slowly progressing disease process that goes unnoticed by you. This process begins with gingivitis which is an inflammation of the gingiva. This disease process can end in Periodontitis, which is inflammation of the ligaments and tissues which hold the tooth in its bony socket. Plaque is the primary cause of gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis by itself is treatable and reversible. Periodontitis can result in loss of the tooths supporting structure. The loss of the tooths supporting structure is not reversible. Advanced periodontal disease can ultimately lead to bony destruction in the tooth sockets, thus jaw fractures. Perhaps the greatest danger in these processes are the bacteria which estabish themselves. The bacteria can spread to any organ in the body via the bloodstream and cause severe and deadly infections.
