Prophylactic dental care has become an important part in the overall care of our pets. Dr. Johnston includes a dental examination as a part of your pet’s physical exam and can determine whether your pet is at risk for dental disease. Our dental cleanings include ultra-sonic scaling and polishing of all teeth, periodontal pocket depth measurement, and finally, each individual tooth is evaluated and charted for overall health.
Recommended treatments such as fluoride treatment and OraVet chews can be selected before your pet’s dental cleaning to further ensure the lifelong health of their teeth. Many dental problems cannot be fully detected until the time of your pet’s teeth cleaning. For pets requiring more in-depth dental work, our team has extensive experience with oral surgery to improve the overall health of your pet.
