Dental disease is the most common disease in dogs and cats. Over 50% of cats and 85% of dogs over the age of 3 have dental problems that require professional treatment. The consequences of leaving dental disease untreated include:
- oral pain and infection
- loss of teeth
- potential infection to major body organs
- diminished quality of life
Here at Four Paws Veterinary Clinic we use the same equipment and anesthesia as human dentists do.
Some of the routine procedures we perform include:
- Surgical extractions
- Treatment of periodontal disease
- Oral cancer surgery
To ensure professional and attentive care and to treat everything from routine cleanings to surgical extractions, Four Paws Veterinary Clinic has installed state-of-the-art equipment including heart and blood pressure monitors, a patient warming system and advanced anesthesia equipment.
