Veterinary Dentistry – Clean teeth and healthy gums are essential to your pet’s health. Infections are more common in the mouth because they can go undetected for long periods of time. Our veterinary staff regularly performs oral exams, dental cleanings and periodontal care as part of our comprehensive health care goals.
Unfortunately, signs of dental problems are often subtle and may go undetected for months, or even years. Regular dental examinations by a veterinary dentist are recommended. Your pet’s yearly physical examination is a good opportunity for a dental checkup.
Dental problems, if left untreated, can often lead to larger systemic problems in your pet due to oral bacteria entering the blood stream and damaging the kidneys, heart and liver. The Pet Medical Center of Edmond Oklahoma offers excellent veterinary dentistry services for experience and qualified professionals who have made animal care their lives work.
The doctors and staff of the Pet Medical Center of Edmond are very excited to announce the addition of dental radiography to the services that we offer to improve the health of your pet. Dental radiographs are one of the most important diagnostic tools available to a veterinary dentist. They allow the dentist to examine the internal anatomy of the teeth, the roots of those teeth, and the bone that surrounds the root. Dental radiographs will allow us to provide an even higher level of service to you and your pet.
Dental radiographs are one of the most important diagnostic tools available. They allow our veterinarians to examine the internal anatomy of the teeth, the roots of those teeth, and the bone that surrounds the root.
Intra-oral radiographs are made using small radiographic film or a digital sensor placed inside the patient’s mouth, and provide superior quality for examination of individual teeth or sections of the jaws compared with standard-sized veterinary radiographs. Because veterinary patients will not cooperate when the radiographic film or sensor is placed in the mouth, taking dental radiographs requires that the patient to be anesthetized or sedated. The radiation risk to the patient from taking dental radiographs is minimal.
Pet Medical Center constantly strives to grow in the knowledge and technology necessary to provide the best health care possible for your pet. Please contact us to schedule an oral evaluation of your pet.
Brushing is ALWAYS BEST. It must be done at least 3 times per week for best results. Most pets can be trained to accept this and come to enjoy it. KEY: Make it a big deal– bonding time for you both. The toothpaste comes in many flavors: vanilla, mint, poultry, etc.
