Complete Pet Dental Care for a Healthy Mouth
Did you know dental disease is the number one disease affecting both cats and dogs? More than two-thirds have some form of the disease by the time they’re three years old! Not only does it give them bad breath and discolored teeth, but it can cause very serious complications if left untreated. Bacteria from their mouth can enter the bloodstream and damage the heart, kidneys, and liver. At Best Friends Animal Hospital in Fayetteville, we offer complete pet dental care services and a passion for prevention to combat this painful disease.
“There is never a doubt that the staff and vets at Best Friends will take fantastic care of our dogs. Would never consider going anywhere else!”
Preventing Dental Disease with Professional Care
Dental disease prevention focuses on maintaining good oral hygiene with both professional cleanings as well as at-home care. Our veterinarians and technicians expertly perform dental cleanings to remove tartar and plaque buildup which greatly improves your pet’s oral health.
Our dental services include:
- Complete oral examination
- Digital dental radiographs to examine teeth and roots below the gum line
- Ultrasonic scaling of each tooth to remove tartar
- Polishing the teeth to prevent future tartar buildup
- Extracting diseased or broken teeth, only as needed
Advanced Safety Measures with Every Procedure
Dental procedures require anesthesia for the safety of both your pet and our staff. Just as with surgery, your pet receives pre-anesthetic blood work to ensure they are healthy enough for the procedure, an IV catheter to provide them with warmed fluids, and full monitoring of their vitals with our quality equipment.
Caring for Your Pet's Teeth at Home
Professional pet dental care is only part of the oral health equation. You also play a pivotal role in preventing dental disease. Our veterinarians will help you find the right product or combination of products to suit your pet’s dental needs and your abilities. We recommend only products approved by the Veterinary Oral Health Council, which are proven to work.
