Dental health is one of the most overlooked components of pet care, yet it’s one of the most important factors in keeping your companion happy and healthy. An unhealthy mouth can cause everything from stinky breath to tooth loss and it can eventually leave to dental disease, a serious medical condition that can wreak havoc on your pet’s entire body. The good news is this is easily preventable through routine dental care – both at the vet and at home.
The dental team at Cornell Center Animal Hospital is experienced in performing a wide range of professional pet dentistry services, including preventative care as well as the treatment and management of existing oral health problems. We use modern equipment to examine, clean and polish the teeth, helping to keep plaque and tartar at bay and reducing the risk of periodontal disease. We are also skilled at performing extractions and oral surgery, as needed, for pets suffering from dental problems.
