Healthy teeth and gums play an important role in the ongoing good health and wellbeing of your animal companion. In fact, dental disease is one of the most commonly diagnosed conditions in adult cats and dogs. This condition, if left untreated, can wreak havoc on your pet’s entire body, including the heart, liver, lungs and kidneys. The good news is dental disease can be prevented through routine dental care.
The staff at Burr Ridge Veterinary Clinic are trained and experienced in modern veterinary dental care techniques and services including regular cleanings, tooth polishing and extraction, as needed. We also employ the use of digital dental radiology (x-ray) to help us identify and diagnose any issues with your pet’s oral health so they can be addressed in a timely manner.
Finally, we’re prepared to work with you to provide advice and guidance on home dental care techniques that you can use to help keep your pet’s teeth and gums clean and healthy at home, in between vet visits. Together we will work toward helping your animal companion enjoy good oral health for life!
