Pet Dental Care

brunswick/bath pet dental care

Proper dental care not only adds years to your pet's life, but also increases his or her general health, vitality and wellbeing. Regular dental care and teeth cleanings help ensure your pet leads the best life possible.

Fifty percent of all pets need dental care at any given time. If left untreated, dental disease is not only painful and inhibits proper nutrition, but it can also lead to serious systemic issues that may threaten your pet's health before symptoms are noticeable. For example, oral bacteria that enter the bloodstream can damage your pet's kidneys, heart and liver.

Dr. Walsh and his team take the oral and dental health of your cat or dog very seriously and believe that dental care is an important piece of your pet's preventive care. Our doctors regularly attend continuing education classes, given by a board certified veterinary dental specialist, in order to receive the most up-to-date training and learn the latest techniques in pet dental care.

We have a dedicated veterinary dental unit that includes a modern ultrasonic teeth scaler. Our dental technicians are highly trained and take great pride in the services they provide to your pet.

Dental Services

The centerpiece of good dental care is a complete oral exam followed by a thorough cleaning. Dental cleanings include ultrasonic scaling followed by polishing and a mouth rinse, the combination of which is designed to remove plaque and slow its buildup.

Digital dental x-rays are high-definition images that provide a view below your pet's gumline in order to look for evidence of dental disease that cannot be seen by visual examination alone. Our digital dental x-ray machine is extremely useful for detecting problems before they become much larger and more expensive to treat.

Should we find any issues, such as evidence of gum or tooth decay, gingivitis, or excessive plaque buildup, we will discuss this with you and provide treatment options. We are experienced in dentistry and are capable of offering a number of dental procedures and oral surgeries.

Some of the dental services we offer include:

  • Oral examinations under anesthesia
  • Diagnosis and treatment of Periodontal disease
  • Supra and Subgingival scaling (we use high Piezo ultrasonic scalers)
  • Tooth extractions
  • Polishing
  • Irrigation
  • Fluoride application
  • Oral X-rays

We are dedicated to educating you, the pet owner, about the importance of your pet's dental health.
