With regular at-home dental care as well as routine professional cat and dog teeth cleaning at our hospital in Oregon, OH, we can prevent dental disease altogether.

Tips for Preventing Dental Disease in Dogs & Cats

You can play an important role in preventing your pet’s dental problems with just a few simple steps, including:

  • Brushing your cat’s or dog’s teeth daily
  • Adding dental chews or dental treats to their diet
  • Talking to your veterinarian about prescription dental diets
  • Scheduling routine professional dental cleanings at our hospital

We understand that brushing your pet’s teeth can be a challenge, but even doing so once or twice a week makes a big difference! If your pet is adamant about not allowing you to brush their teeth, try a piece of gauze on your finger and rub their teeth and gums. If even that won’t work, relying on dental chews or a prescription diet is an effective alternative!

Our Professional Cat & Dog Teeth Cleaning Services

Due to the nature of this procedure, it’s essential that we put your pet under general anesthesia. This is for their ultimate safety and comfort. We use all the safety standards for cat and dog teeth cleanings that we use for surgeries so your pet is in the best of hands.

Our dental procedures include:

  • Digital dental X-rays to evaluate the roots and bones below the gum line
  • A thorough dental exam to check for periodontal pockets and other signs of disease
  • Ultrasonic and hand scaling of each tooth to remove tartar buildup both above and below the gum line
  • Polishing of the teeth to smooth the enamel and reduce future plaque buildup
  • Dental extractions, if needed, of damaged teeth*

*If your pet requires dental extractions, we’ll provide them with the appropriate pain medication to ensure they wake from anesthesia with minimal discomfort.
