Dental problems can cause severe pain and make eating difficult, negatively affecting your pet’s nutritional status. And when left untreated, some dental problems, such as infections, can cause serious systemic (whole-body) problems.
For these reasons, the Animal Medical Center of Troy offers comprehensive preventive and therapeutic dental care for your pet, including:
- Prophylaxis (application of medication to prevent decay) and tooth polishing
- Tooth cleaning with ultrasonic scalers
- Digital x-rays to diagnose the source of dental problems
- Oral surgery, including extractions
