Proper dental care and treatment can provide major benefits for your cat’s health and happiness. Unhealthy teeth and gums provide a place for bacteria to enter the bloodstream that can cause heart, liver and kidney problems. They can also cause major discomfort which can adversely affect your cat’s enjoyment of eating.
The average cat needs his/her first dental by 1-4 years of age, and often yearly thereafter. The veterinarian will let you know when it is time during your cat’s annual or semi-annual wellness exam. Under monitored anesthesia, we perform digital dental radiographs, utilize an ultrasonic scaler, a high-speed polisher and fluoride treatment for your cat’s benefit. If extractions are needed, our veterinarians are very experienced.
