National Pet Dental Month
We at Beacon Pet Hospital are all committed to the health and well-being of your beloved family member. Preventative care is an opportunity to significantly improve your pet’s quality of life for many years to come. Dental disease, is the most common health problem in pets, when plaque and tartar accumulation can cause bad breath, gum disease, tooth root exposure and increase the risk for other infections.
We are fully equipped for routine and complex dental procedures such as ultrasonic scaling and polishing and dental extractions.
Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet’s teeth. We use modern and safe instruments to clean each tooth thoroughly – above and below the gum line. Teeth are polished to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup. Medicated treatments help strengthen enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity. Diseased teeth are extracted and pain control is prescribed to make your kitty comfortable throughout recovery.
