Pet Dental Care

Dental Before and After Dental Before and After

A core focus of the veterinarians at Jones Bridge Animal Hospital is dental health.

Good dental hygiene increases your pet's vitality, wellbeing and adds additional years to his or her life. Regular dental check-ups and teeth cleanings help ensure your pet leads the best life possible.

If left untreated, dental disease can not only be painful and inhibit proper nutrition, but it can also lead to serious systemic issues that may threaten your pet's health before symptoms are noticeable. It is estimated that more than 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats develop tooth and gum disease by the age of three years.

Dental Services

We believe that the centerpiece of good dental care is a complete oral exam followed by a thorough cleaning. Dental cleanings include ultrasonic scaling followed by polishing and a mouth rinse, the combination of which is designed to remove plaque and slow its buildup.

Jones Bridge Animal Hospital offers digital dental radiology which produces high-definition images of your pet's teeth. More accurate than traditional radiology, digital dental radiology produces clear images of the area below your pet's gum line in order to diagnose dental disease that cannot be seen by visual examination alone. This is a powerful tool for enabling the treatment of dental disease before it becomes much larger and more difficult to treat.

Your pet's dental prophylaxis services include:

  • Oral examinations under anesthesia
  • Extractions
  • Dental surgery
  • Dental prophylaxis
  • Digital x-rays
  • Ultrasound scalings

We chart your pet's teeth at every cleaning. One of our veterinarians evaluates the teeth and any x-rays that may be taken.
