Veterinary Dentistry in Cary

Dental disease is the most common disease in dogs and cats. Periodontal disease not only causes bad breath, discomfort, and loss of teeth, but can also adversely affect general health and quality of life. Tooth resorption is a common disease process in cats that can cause significant oral pain. Prevention and treatment of diseases of the teeth and gums is an essential part of the health care services we provide.

- Full oral health evaluations
- Professional teeth cleaning above and below the gum line
- Intraoral digital radiography
- Fractured teeth treatment
- Periodontal therapy
- Oral surgery
We also provide diets, toothbrushes, toothpastes, and other home care products to help maintain your pet’s oral health.
At-Home Dental Care for Your Pet(s)
Regular home dental care will aid in preventing the buildup of plaque on
your pet’s teeth. Brushing your cat or dog’s teeth on a daily
basis significantly reduces the buildup of plaque on the teeth. Plaque
is an accumulation of bacteria that can lead to periodontitis if left
untreated. Periodontitis causes pain and chronic oral infections that
will eventually loosen and destroy the teeth, possibly leading to bone loss.
Common signs of dental disease in pets include:
- Bad breath
- Loose teeth
- Bleeding from the mouth
- Teeth that are discolored and/or covered in tartar
- Drooling or dropping food from the mouth
- Loss of appetite or weight loss
- Sensitivity near the mouth area
If your dog or cat shows any of these signs, please call to schedule a dental exam with one of our veterinarians.
