Digital X-Ray

It would be much simpler if pets could talk like humans and point out what’s bothering them and where it hurts, but that’s not the case. Our modern digital x-ray equipment lets us get an accurate picture of your pet’s dental situation and get a well-informed diagnosis.

With an accurate diagnosis, our highly skilled professionals can provide you with the best treatment for your pet’s dental problems in Toronto. Our ultimate goal is to provide the most effective treatment for your pets, which leads to a carefree life for your pet and you.

Ultrasonic Pet Dental Treatments

Ultrasonic cleaning helps to safely and thoroughly remove tartar which in pets is a hard scale rather than soft tartar like in people.

Subgingival Hand-Scaling

This method allows us to remove the subgingival calculus from the tooth’s surface. It is a very meticulous process that eliminates as much debris and inflamed tissue as possible to prevent diseases like Periodontal or Gingivitis.

Tooth Extractions and Re-alignment

Sometimes, your pet may suffer from Malocclusion, a misalignment of the lower and upper jaw. While this may be normal for some breeds but your pet may have difficulty chewing in other extreme cases.

Our professionals can diagnose and evaluate these problems precisely and help your pet by referring you to a veterinary dentist for re-aligning and capping or extracting their teeth if needed. If you feel like your pet is having any difficulty while eating, get in touch with us today for a dental diagnosis of your pet in Toronto.

Factors Associated with Pet Dental Disease

Paying close attention to the factors contributing to dental issues can help you maintain your pet's oral health. These factors include:

  • Diet: Some foods increase or decrease the occurrence of dental problems in pets. When you visit our animal hospital in Toronto, we can help you identify these food items and dental treats or products.

  • Age: Dental problems can occur in younger pets, but they're more common in seniors. Looking out for the early signs of dental troubles in your older pet can help you take preventative action.

  • Breed: Some breeds, such as smaller dogs or Persian cats, are more likely to have crowded teeth, making cleaning hard. This particular factor can contribute to your pet having poor oral health.

When you visit us for pet dental services in Toronto, we will carefully inspect the factors causing and worsening your pet's dental issues.


The Importance of Pet Dental Services

  • Prevent tooth loss: Structures that support your pet’s teeth can become infected and damaged. Prolonged damage can cause their teeth to loosen or even fall out and can cause oral pain.

  • Prevent bad breath: Do you get a nasty whiff of your dog’s breath? It is a clear sign that bacteria is building up inside their mouth, either food particles being stuck to their teeth or periodontal disease.

  • Avoid periodontal disease: Inflammation and gum infections are common in canine which causes the gums to recede from the teeth and loosen the roots of the teeth.

  • Prevent pain: Prolonged dental disease can cause pain to your pets, and timely dental care can prevent that pain.

Our veterinarian has over 40 years of experience and you can be assured that we will provide a safe and comfortable environment for your pets. Whether you are looking for one-time dog teeth cleaning service or continuous oral care for your pet, we can help you.

Pet Dental Services | FAQ

Having access to information allows you to make informed decisions about your pet's dental health. The following are some commonly asked questions about pet dental services:


How Common Are Pet Dental Problems?

Many people are not aware that a large number of dogs and cats suffer from dental diseases. This lack of information causes failure to treat easily avoidable dental problems. As a result, many pets may suffer from liver, kidney, digestive and other issues.

No, they're not. While humans tend to suffer from dental decay and cavities, cats and dogs do not. Periodontal disease is the leading cause of pet dental health problems.

Why Does My Pet Require Professional Dental Cleaning?

While home care and dental cleaning are essential, we will clean your pet's teeth in a way that you can't. We deep clean your pet's teeth to remove bacteria, tartar and other particles to prevent diseases. Dental X-rays can identify early signs of disease.

This depends on your pet's dental health. Many factors can affect the frequency of dental visits, such as:

  • Whether your pet suffers from any diseases

  • Type of homecare
