Dentistry

Healthy gums and clean teeth are the cornerstones of wellness and good health for your pet. Without the proper care and attention, your pet’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria, which can lead to everything from bad breath and tooth loss to dental disease, a serious condition that can affect your pet’s entire body. At Noah’s Brandywine Animal Health Care Center, we take the oral health care of our patients seriously, and we have all the pet dentistry services you need to help your companion enjoy a lifetime of good oral health.

Our highly skilled team of veterinary professionals are experienced in every aspect of pet dentistry, from preventative dental care, including exams and cleanings, to the treatment of existing oral health problems, such as gingivitis and extractions. We offer routine dental prophylaxis, using state of the art, ultrasonic instruments to help keep our patients’ teeth clean and healthy. If necessary, we also have the ability to take x-rays of your pet’s mouth to further identify, diagnose and treat potential dental problems.

Along with our extensive line of preventative dental care services, we also perform a variety of advanced procedures to address existing oral health problems, including extractions and the treatment of disease. Whatever dental problems are affecting your pet’s health and wellbeing, we’re here to help!

Some of the signs of dental problems include:

  • Bad breath
  • Discolored teeth
  • Teeth that are broken, cracked or loose
  • Red, swollen or bleeding gums
  • Difficulty chewing food and/or reluctance to play with chew toys

If you notice your pet showing one or more of these symptoms, give us a call to schedule an appointment for a dental exam.

Please note, all pets undergoing any kind of dental procedure will need to be placed under general anesthesia, for their safety and ours. In order to ensure that this process goes as smoothly as possible, all patients receive pre-anesthetic blood work, IV catheter placement with fluids, and cardiopulmonary monitoring throughout the procedure to ensure their safety and wellbeing at all times. Other types of pain medication, such as local anesthetic blocks, may also be used, and we may prescribe oral pain medication to bring home should your pet require it following a dental procedure.

Of course, quality pet dental care doesn’t just occur within the walls of our clinic. We also believe that there are things that you can and should be doing at home to help keep your companion’s mouth healthy and clean in between vet visits. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff will work with you to provide advice on products you can try as well as at-home dental care tips and techniques that you can use. Together we will work hard to help your pet enjoy a healthy smile for life!
