Professional Dental Cleaning and Dental Radiology
It is estimated that up to 85% of our pets suffer from dental disease. At Galloway Village Veterinary, we recognize that dental disease can lead to problems in the rest of the body. Reducing tartar and plaque reduces a reservoir of bacteria that is otherwise circulated to vital organs in the body, including the heart, liver, and kidneys. All pets who receive an exam at Galloway Village have their teeth assessed and graded and, if needed, are recommended an ultrasonic dental cleaning. This is done under general anesthesia and includes careful assesment of each tooth, an ultrasonic scaling, polish and a fluoride treatment.
We are also very proud to now offer digital dental radiology. The ability to take x-rays of the mouth and teeth enables our veterinarians to provide the best care possible for your pet and the health of his or her mouth. Please feel free to discuss any dental concerns you have with your pet at your next visit.
