As a hospital, Newtown Vet consistently provides the best medical treatment for our patients while also educating our clients so they can make informed decisions for their pets. With dental disease now the number one health problem diagnosed in pets, Newtown Vet has made our patients’ dental health a top priority.
At Newtown Vet Hospital we are equipped with the latest technology and tools to offer your pet the highest quality dental care.
Our oral health program consist of three parts, each tailored to fit your pet:
- A complete oral exam of the mouth including charting of periodontal pockets for each tooth, and digital x-rays of each tooth and its root structure to evaluate for disease below the gumline.
- Cleaning each individual tooth above and below the gumline by ultrasonic scaling and application of fluoride paste, followed by polishing each tooth to seal its surface.
- Educating our clients about continued dental care to help prevent disease going forward.
Each step in the cleaning process is performed under general anesthesia in accordance with the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) dental care guidelines.
If additional treatments are needed, your veterinarian will create a customized plan for you and your pet.
