Did you know that According to the American Veterinary Dental Society (AVDS), eighty percent of dogs and seventy percent of cats have periodontal disease by the age of three?
Did you also know that up to 70% of each tooth is below the gum line and without radiographs, 75% of dental disease is overlooked?
Digital dental radiography is fast becoming one of the standards of care for our pets. It will help us to identify painful conditions such as tooth fractures below the gum line, tooth root abscesses and infections, bone loss around tooth roots, retained or unerupted teeth, feline resorptive lesions and many other conditions that would otherwise go undetected.
To celebrate Pet Dental Health Month we will be offering discounts on all dental procedures performed at our hospital in the month of February.
Call us today to schedule a comprehensive dental examination!
