Pet Dental Care
Routine and preventive dental care is vital to your pet’s long-term health. Pets with poor oral hygiene can develop periodontal disease, which can often lead to heart, lung, and kidney disease. Arlington Park Veterinary Hospital offers a full range of dental services for pets, including dental examinations, dental extractions, and oral surgery, as well as home care instructions for keeping your pet’s teeth clean and healthy.
Routine Pet Dental Examinations
Our veterinarians perform basic oral exams on all our patients during their comprehensive physical exams. Puppies and kittens will be examined to detect any problems related to the deciduous (baby) teeth, missing or extra teeth, swellings, and oral development. Senior pets will be evaluated for developmental anomalies, the accumulation of plaque and tartar, periodontal disease, and oral tumors.
