Over 85% of dogs and cats have dental disease by the time they reach three or four years old. Healthy teeth and gums are the cornerstones of your pet’s ongoing health and wellbeing. If left untreated, plaque and tartar buildup can lead to periodontal disease. Dental disease is a serious condition that can lead to painful gums and tooth loss. It can also wreak havoc on an animal’s entire body, from the heart and lungs to the kidneys, liver and nervous system. The good news is dental disease can be easily prevented through regular dental care.
At Animal Medical Center of Mid-America, we offer a wide range of comprehensive veterinary dental services, from routine cleanings (prophylaxis), to extractions and periodontal disease management as needed. Radiology is also used as part of our extensive dentistry services. Specially designed dental radiology equipment allows our specialists to view structures that lie below the gum line. With this knowledge, the best decisions can be made about what dental treatment is right for your pet.
When it comes to veterinary dental care, our highly skilled and knowledgeable staff is well-trained in the most up-to-date techniques and is prepared to deliver the best available oral care for your pet. We’ll also work with you to provide guidance and advice on home dental care to help keep your pet’s teeth clean in between visits. Together we will work toward helping your animal companion achieve a lifetime of good dental health.
