Why Is It Important?

Dental health is just as important for pets as it is for humans! Our team at Everhart does not want your pet to suffer from an unhealthy mouth. Bad breath is a clear indicator of bacteria, which over time, leads to a buildup of tartar and plaque on the animal’s teeth. Other signs of dental disease include discomfort while chewing, missing teeth, and excessive drooling.

Did you know that dental disease in your animal could affect more than just the teeth?

Bacteria associated with dental disease can enter the pet’s bloodstream and can lead to infection in the other organs. We highly recommend taking advantage of our dental examinations to protect your pet from dental disease. Our experts will thoroughly inspect your pet’s gums and teeth for any dental issues. Fortunately, the majority of dental disease can be treated and prevented in most pets.

Our Dental Services:

  • Dental surgery (digital radiography, scaling/polishing, and extractions)
  • Preventative Professional Dental Cleaning (Usage Of Procare Products- gels and solutions)
