Pet Dental Care in Greenland
You clean your teeth on a regular basis to prevent cavities, so why shouldn’t your pet receive the same consistent dental care? Greenland Veterinary Hospital places a strong emphasis on pet dentistry, due to the mouth-body connection. Neglected oral health can lead to gum disease, which can eventually affect the heart, liver, and kidneys. This isn’t a fate that any loving pet owner would want for his companion, so we’re committed to preventing gum disease in any way we can. Our team has invested in ongoing pet dental care education as well as state-of-the-art pet dental equipment, which allows us to provide pets with high-quality, modern dental care.
About Our Pet Dental Services
When you bring your pet to Greenland Veterinary Hospital for dental care, you can expect nothing but exceptional care. We perform all dental services under anesthesia and monitor all vitals throughout every procedure. Our veterinary technicians assist with each dental cleaning, ensuring that your pet is monitored and safe at all times. A standard professional pet dental cleaning consists of:
- Comprehensive oral exam
- Anesthesia and surgical monitoring
- Digital dental X-rays to view below the gum line
- Tartar and plaque removal (scaling)
- Polishing to smooth tooth surfaces
At-Home Pet Dental Care
In addition to professional veterinary care, we recommend that you maintain your pet’s dental health from home with regular brushing. Combining veterinary dental care with at-home dental care is the best way to prevent oral problems for your canine or feline companion. There are several products available that can help prevent tartar buildup—which can then prevent gum disease—such as chews and toys. We can give you brushing tips and product recommendations at your next visit.
