DENTISTRY

Protect your pet’s overall health with proper dental care.

We take pet dental care very seriously.

According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease. Proper dental care can extend your pet’s life by YEARS! Animals can suffer from plaque and tartar build up just like us. They can also get broken and infected teeth that can abscess and be very painful. Gum disease or abscesses can result in an infection that spreads to the heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs and cause life-threatening illnesses. We recommend dental cleanings as soon as we see plaque and tartar buildup. This helps to PREVENT any dental disease such as gingivitis, abscessed (infected) teeth, fractured (broken) teeth, or loose teeth which are all painful conditions.​

What happens during a dental cleaning?
  • A thorough physical exam is performed prior to the dental procedure.
  • Pre-anesthetic bloodwork is ALWAYS recommended – this helps us formulate an anesthetic plan that tailors to your pet’s physical health needs.
  • Your pet is sedated, a catheter is placed, then your pet is anesthetized and intubated. Once your pet has been anesthetized, we fully monitor your pet under anesthesia, and they are provided with warmth and IV fluids.
  • All teeth are scaled, polished, examined, and treated with fluoride.
  • After recovery, a dental discharge appointment is scheduled that day to discuss with you what was achieved during your pet’s dental cleaning.

​Crossroads Animal Hospital recommends that your pet’s wellness plan includes annual dental cleanings. For more information concerning animal dentistry, please see AVMA – Pet Dental Care. ​
