Pet Dental Care

Cypress Creek Animal Hospital provides pet dental care services including comprehensive dental exam, full-mouth digital dental x-rays, cleaning, polishing, and overall assessment as well as extractions and recommendations for at-home dental care.

Believe it or not, pets need to have their teeth checked and cleaned regularly. They will develop tartar and plaque deposits on their teeth which can lead to dental disease if they do not receive routine care from a qualified professional. Most pet owners are not aware that with regular cleaning, polishing, and check-ups, as well as following good oral hygiene habits at home, you can typically extend the life of your pet by several years.

We encourage pet parents to begin regular dental exams and cleanings when pets are young to prevent the development of periodontal disease. Brushing your pet’s teeth in between cleanings and supplying them with oral hygiene chews are additional preventive measures that we encourage.

If you notice your pet exhibiting any of the following conditions, give us a call and schedule a pet dental care appointment:

  • • Abnormal chewing, drooling, or dropping food from the mouth
  • • Bad breath
  • • Bleeding from the mouth
  • • Broken or loose teeth
  • • Gum recession and/or gum swelling
  • • Pain in or around the mouth
  • • Pawing at the face or mouth
  • • Reduced appetite or refusal to eat
  • • Swelling of the face
  • • Teeth that are discolored or covered in tartar
  • • Weight loss
