Pet Dental Care is About More than Pearly Whites
Your pet’s teeth are a surprisingly good indicator of their overall health and well-being. When their dental health suffers, it affects more than their mouths. Pain from dental disease can affect their behavior and even their ability to eat! Brushing your pet's teeth daily can have an enormous impact on their dental health, but it’s not enough. To fully prevent dental disease, they’ll need professional teeth cleaning. At Broadway Pet Hospital, we deliver exceptional pet dental care services for the Oakland community.
Our Dental Services
Our veterinarians and certified technicians are skilled in dental procedures. Since dental cleanings require general anesthesia, we use all the same safety precautions as surgery. Typically, your pet’s dental procedure will consist of the following:
- Digital dental X-rays to assess the health of teeth below the gum line
- A thorough evaluation of the teeth and gums
- Ultrasonic scaling of each tooth to remove tartar
- Polishing of each tooth to slow future tartar buildup
- Sealants to further protect teeth
If needed, we will perform extractions of any broken or loose teeth. You will always be informed before we proceed with an extraction. Additionally, we will ensure your pet has proper pain management both during and after the procedure.
