Pet Dentistry in Lincolndale, NY

Dentistry in veterinary medicine involves more than just keeping your pet’s mouth fresh and teeth white. Routine dental assessments and cleanings under general anesthesia are important to prevent bone loss and tissue inflammation. Unaddressed dental disease can increase your pet’s risk of heart, kidney, and liver disease. We can perform general cleanings and extractions.

70 to 80 percent of dogs and cats have some evidence of periodontal disease by the time they are 3 years old. Dental disease is painful and can have far-reaching effects on your pet’s health. We use digital dental x-ray to screen for periodontal disease above the gumline that would otherwise go undetected. Thorough dental exams and cleanings can help your pet lead a longer, healthier life.

Signs of dental disease include bad breath, loose, broken, or missing teeth, yellow or brown teeth, red, inflamed, or bleeding gums, difficulty or pain when chewing, pawing at the mouth, and excessive drooling. If you notice any of these symptoms, please contact our team, and we’ll be happy to help.
