Veterinary Dentistry & Dental Surgery in Thomasville
Just like us, our pets need healthy teeth and gums. Our Thomasville Veterinary Hospital Urgent Care + Surgery veterinarians provide extensive dental care and surgery for cats and dogs.
Your pet's oral health is critical to their overall health and wellbeing.
Just like us, their teeth can break, orthodontic problems can impact their quality of life, and cavities can become an issue. In fact, periodontal disease is common among cats and dogs.
At Thomasville Veterinary Hospital Urgent Care + Surgery, we offer comprehensive dental care, including dental x-rays, dental surgeries, cleaning and polishing teeth, and education about at-home care.
Your pet needs a dental exam at least once a year. If your cat or dog is more prone to dental problems, they may need to visit more often.
At Thomasville Veterinary Hospital Urgent Care + Surgery, we assess, treat, and help prevent dental problems in cats and dogs.
Bring your dog or cat in for a dental checkup if you notice they are experiencing any of these symptoms:
First, we'll perform a thorough pre-anesthetic physical exam on your pet.
We evaluate your pet's blood and urine analyses to ensure it is safe for your pet to undergo anesthesia. Additional diagnostics such as an ECG or chest radiographs will also be conducted, if required.
Once your pet is safely under anesthesia, we perform a full oral examination (tooth by tooth) and charting.
While your pet is still safely under anesthesia, we clean and polish the crowns of the teeth and under the gum line.
Each tooth is probed and a dental sealant is applied to retard the attachment of plaque. If advanced periodontal disease is found, a treatment plan will be developed and discussed with you at the end of the day.
We'll schedule a complimentary follow-up examination two weeks after the assessment and treatment appointment.
At this visit, we will discuss implementing teeth brushing at home as well as other products available that can help improve your pet's oral health.
When you go to the dentist, you know that the procedures your dentist performs are designed to help you and keep your mouth healthy.
Your pet does not understand this – and he or she will react to dental procedures by struggling, trying to escape, or even biting.
Anesthesia allows us to perform dental procedures effectively with less stress and pain for your pet.
We want your pet to be comfortable and relaxed so we can provide the most beneficial care for their health.
If your pet is scheduled for a procedure that may require anesthesia and you have questions about the process or what to expect, please call our office to learn more.
