Veterinary Dental Services

At Cat Care Clinic, all pet dental procedures are performed under anesthesia. Our veterinarians provide veterinary dental services, dental prophylaxis, and surgical extractions to manage and treat severe oral disease conditions. All routine prophylaxis includes:

  • Ultrasonic scaling of each tooth to remove tartar
  • Evaluation of each tooth for visible resorptive lesions or other tooth decay
  • Detection of gingival recession and bone loss to indicate disease below the gum line
  • Full mouth digital x-rays
  • Polishing each tooth
  • Fluoride treatment
  • Sealant application to each tooth

Cat Dental HealthWhen dental problems and oral diseases are diagnosed, sometimes a dental procedure may be necessary. It is important that you are available during the day of your pet’s dental procedure to discuss their needs while under anesthesia. If you wish, you may give prior written consent to perform all needed procedures before-hand if your availability is questionable. Estimates for other procedures can be provided at your request. Such procedures may include:

  • An extended release antibiotic gel inserted in a gingival pocket to combat infection
  • Tooth extraction
  • Bone graft material to help regenerate bone loss

Cat Care Clinic is equipped with state-of-the-art oral surgical equipment and the latest technology to provide your pet with a safe dental procedure.

Pet Dental Care

Routine and preventive dental care is vital to your cat's long term health. Pets with poor oral hygiene can develop periodontal disease, which can often lead to heart, lung, and kidney disease. Cat Care Clinic offers a full range of dental services for cats including dental examinations, dental extractions, and oral surgery as well as home care instructions for keeping your cat's teeth clean and healthy.

Routine Pet Dental Examinations

Our veterinarians perform basic oral exams on all our patients during their comprehensive physical exam. Kittens will be examined to detect any problems related to the deciduous (baby) teeth, missing or extra teeth, swellings, and oral development. Senior cats will be evaluated for developmental anomalies, the accumulation of plaque and tartar, periodontal disease, and oral tumors.
