Pet Dental Care Braintree, MA
We provide pet dental care services at Braintree Veterinary Care.
Pet Dental Care
Regular dental cleanings are important in maintaining not only your pet’s teeth and gums but their overall health as well. During your pet’s dental cleaning procedure, we perform a comprehensive oral exam, including dental charting and dental probing, followed by ultrasonic scaling and polishing using our Midmark dental unit. At Braintree Veterinary Care, scaling your pet’s teeth allows plaque buildup to be removed both above and below the gum line. Polishing is important as it creates a smooth tooth surface that is more resistant to future plaque buildup.
Digital Dental Radiographs/Digital Dental X rays
Our hospital offers digital dental radiographs (x-rays) as part of our dental care services. You may not know that the majority of tooth disease is hidden below the gum line in areas we cannot see. Utilizing specifically designed digital dental radiology equipment allows our veterinarians to view structures that lie below the gum line and provide the best treatment recommendations for your pet.
