Oral health is an often overlooked yet very important aspect of the overall health and wellness of your pet.  Left untreated, dental disease can cause significant pain and discomfort as well as allow bacteria to spread through the bloodstream and cause other systemic issues.

Signs of dental disease in companion animals include, but are not limited to:

  • Bad breath
  • Excessive drooling
  • Dropping food
  • Sudden disinterest in chew toys
  • Loss of appetite
  • Swollen or painful face
  • Pawing at the mouth
  • Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
  • Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding

The professional dentistry services at Dakota Hills Veterinary Clinic provide both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions.  Dentistry services include:

  • Dental cleaning, polishing and gingival pocket measurement
  • Digital dental x-rays
  • Extraction of diseased teeth
  • Periodontal filler
  • Dental sealant
  • Bonding to treat enamel defects
  • Therapy laser treatment
  • Gingival surgery
