Veterinary Dentistry

At Heritage Veterinary Hospital, pet dentistry is of high importance. Our veterinary dental services include dental care because we believe that dentistry is one of the most critical aspects of preventive health care. Recent studies in advanced veterinary medicine have shown that there is a direct connection between oral health and overall physical health. That’s why we strive for a clean and healthy mouth in every pet. Problems like dental disease can slowly leak toxins into the bloodstream—from rotted teeth or gums—eventually spreading infection to other organs of the body, including the heart, kidneys, and liver. These conditions are serious, yet easily preventable with proper oral care.

Professional Animal Dentistry and Oral Surgery

Our professional pet dental cleanings are performed under closely-monitored anesthesia, and each procedure includes pre-anesthetic blood work as a standard. The anesthesia that we offer to our patients is safe for pets of all ages. We are also advocates of pain management for patients whose dental conditions are painful and uncomfortable for them. Our team also provides oral surgery for pets as a part of our dental care. Our surgical procedures extend to tooth extractions, as necessary.

Remember that it’s important to bring your pet in for regular dental maintenance, because some dental conditions can go unnoticed for years, potentially leading to a dental emergency. Our animal hospital is dedicated to offering high-quality dental care for your pet. If the need for emergency dental care arises, you can rest assured that your pet is always in good hands.

If you have questions about the dental services available to your pet, we encourage you to contact us. We’ll be happy to help you.
