Pet Dental Care

Langley Animal Clinic

Dental health is a very important part of your pet’s overall health and well-being. Periodontal or dental disease is common in the majority of pets by the time they are three years of age, and if left untreated, can lead to a number of other health concerns. An annual dental examination with your veterinarian can catch early signs of disease and ensure your pet’s mouth stays healthy.

Common or Routine Pet Dental Care

Here are some of the reasons to bring your pet in for a dental check-up:

  • Bad breath
  • Broken or loose teeth
  • Extra teeth or retained baby teeth
  • Teeth that are discoloured or covered in tartar
  • Abnormal chewing, drooling or dropping food from the mouth
  • Reduced appetite or refusal to eat
  • Pain in or around the mouth
  • Bleeding from the mouth
  • Swelling in the areas surrounding the mouth

If your cat or dog is experiencing any of the above signs, please contact us immediately to book your appointment.

Regular Cat & Dog Dental Cleaning:

It is recommended that pets get their teeth professionally cleaned and polished every year to ensure that any signs of disease are caught early enough to treat. Our dental cleanings are done under general anaesthesia, during which a complete tooth scaling is performed to remove the tartar and plaque buildup from the tooth surface both above and below the gum line. After the teeth are cleaned, they are then polished to delay the recurrence of tartar and plaque.

Dental X-rays: 

During your pet’s dental procedure, full mouth radiographs may allow the veterinarian to thoroughly evaluate the degree of periodontal disease your pet has below the gum line. It also allows the veterinarian to assess the upper and lower jaw. 

Dental Extractions:

After radiographs are performed, the veterinarian will know whether or not your pet will require extractions. If needed, a nerve block will be administered, and the doctor will perform the necessary extractions. Medications such as antibiotics and pain relief will be sent home in most cases, as well as a soft food recommendation until the extraction sites are adequately healed. 

All patients get a complimentary two-week follow-up with one of our technicians to ensure they are healing well after their dental procedure. During this follow-up, the technician will also go through the importance of dental home care for your pet, such as daily tooth brushing, dental diets and dental treats or chews.
