Veterinary Dentistry: More Than a Pretty Smile

Pet Dental Care at Pawsteps Veterinary Clinic

Pet dental care is a critical, often overlooked part of regular animal health care. Routine cleanings are needed to maintain the overall wellbeing of your pet. Additionally, a pet with dental disease is not only in pain, but also is also at risk of developing serious diseases of the entire body. PawSteps Veterinary Center is pleased to provide routine care of your pet’s teeth and to treat diseases of the mouth, gums, and teeth.

At-Home Pet Dental Health

We recommend preventive dental care for all dogs and cats. Our veterinary team is pleased to teach you how to brush and maintain your pet’s teeth. Your pet can be taught at an early age to accept brushing, which dramatically decreases the accumulation of plaque and helps your pet maintain a healthy mouth, teeth, and gums.

In addition, brushing your pet’s teeth several times per week will allow you to check his or her mouth for early signs of dental problems. Oral problems that are identified early and treated rapidly often resolve much more quickly than disease processes that are not swiftly handled.

In-Hospital Pet Dentistry

In addition to home care, your pet needs routine dental services at the PawSteps Veterinary Center.

Keeping your pet’s teeth healthy will not only provide him or her with a pretty "smile," it will also promote excellent overall health. If you have any questions, please contact the knowledgeable staff of PawSteps Veterinary Center.
