Comprehensive Dentistry for Pets

Experienced in veterinary dental techniques for healthy teeth and gums.

When you choose Eastside Animal Hospital for your pet’s oral care needs, we will perform a thorough dental exam, evaluate your pet’s teeth and gums, and recommend any necessary treatment. We use dental radiology to accurately diagnose any underlying issues that might not be visible during a routine checkup. Our preventive care for cats and dogs includes thorough dental cleanings and polishing. We also perform subgingival scaling to remove harmful bacteria below the gum line as well as root planing, which smooths the tooth root to help the gums reattach and heal more effectively. Our veterinary clinic is equipped to perform extractions and other necessary oral surgeries with the utmost care for pets requiring further intervention.

Our veterinary team is also committed to ensuring you feel empowered to maintain your pet’s dental health at home. We can provide demonstrations and detailed instructions for at-home pet dental care techniques. This personalized approach means you will have the tools and knowledge to continue proper pet dental care routines at home, significantly reducing the risk of future dental issues for your beloved companion.

Why Is Pet Dental Care Important?

Good dental care is essential for your pet’s overall health and well-being.

Without it, most pets experience some degree of periodontal disease by the age of three. Poor dental hygiene can cause gum disease, pain, and even systemic infections, which can spread throughout your pet’s body through their bloodstream. Untreated pet dental disease can even lead to premature death in some cases. The signs of pet dental disease are often subtle but can escalate quickly if neglected. Symptoms can include persistent bad breath, visible tartar on the teeth, red, swollen, or bleeding gums, difficulty eating or a preference for softer foods, pawing at the face or mouth, and general signs of discomfort or irritability. Regular dental checkups and cleanings at Eastside Animal Hospital will allow for the early detection and treatment of oral health problems before they become severe. Investing in dental care for your pet is not only a commitment to their oral health but a critical measure to ensure they lead a longer, healthier life.
