Pet Dental Care

It’s important for dogs and cats to see a dentist regularly. Your pet’s oral health is directly connected to their overall health.


Dental Care at Mission Animal Clinic

Imagine if you never brushed your teeth or had them cleaned. As you can imagine, things would eventually have negative consequences inside your mouth; teeth would rot and decay, and your gums would become inflamed and infected. Bacteria from those rotting teeth would subsequently travel into your bloodstream and could cause other serious health problems. 

It’s the same scenario for your dog or cat. While some people might laugh at the idea of brushing their pet’s teeth or taking them for a dental cleaning, the fact is that by age three, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have some evidence of periodontal disease. Periodic dental exams help maintain proper oral hygiene and prevent future problems.

 We pride ourselves on providing comprehensive dental care for your pet. We provide ultrasonic scaling and polishing, dental radiology (x-rays), exodonics (extractions), periodontics (gum disease), and endodontics (composite placement, vital pulpotomies, root canals).

We want your pet to live a long, healthy life, and we understand that maintaining a healthy mouth is part of that. Your pet’s health is important to us, so let us help you with this commitment. Call today or request an appointment online to discuss your pet’s dental care needs and how we can help!
