Why Cleaning Your Pet’s Teeth is Important

Our pets are just as vulnerable to gum disease and cavities, especially since they can’t clean their own teeth. As tartar accumulates, this leaves the door open for infectious bacteria, which can get under the gum line (where 70% of all dental disease occurs) and break down the teeth's supporting tissues. This condition can be painful and cause bad breath, drooling, and tooth loss.

Caring for your pet’s teeth at home and coming in annually for a checkup and teeth cleaning can prevent these issues and help your pet maintain the best quality of life.

Our Pet Dental Care Services in Oro Valley, AZ

The Bailey Veterinary Medical Center is comprehensive when it comes to providing pet dental care. We perform all teeth cleaning procedures under anesthesia, so our team also implements strict protocols before, during, and after the procedure to ensure patient safety.

Our dental services include:

  • A pre-anesthetic exam and bloodwork, which are required to assess patient health and create an appropriate anesthesia protocol.
  • A detailed oral examination while your pet is under anesthesia to check the teeth and gums.
  • Full-mouth digital dental X-rays, which are required for every pet, to look for signs of dental disease (abscesses, tooth damage, bone damage) under the gum line.
  • Scaling and polishing the crowns of the teeth, and root planing to remove hardened material from the tooth roots.
  • If necessary, we can also perform tooth extractions to remove damaged, painful teeth.
