Dental Examinations

Routine dental examinations allow our veterinarians to assess your pet’s oral health and detect any signs of dental disease early on. During these exams, we evaluate your pet’s teeth, gums, and oral tissues for signs of infection, inflammation, or other abnormalities.

Tooth Extractions

In some cases, dental disease may progress to the point where tooth extraction is necessary to alleviate pain and prevent further complications. Our veterinarians are skilled in performing dental extractions safely and effectively, ensuring your pet’s comfort and well-being throughout the procedure.

Benefits of Pet Dentistry
