At Mitchell Animal Hospital we offer dental scaling and polishing to our patients. Our equipment, including our dental x-ray unit, is very similar to that found in a human dental office.
Dentistry is an important part of the care of our pets. Dental problems can result in significant pain and discomfort, as well as allowing infection to spread from the mouth to other parts of the body such as the kidneys and heart valves. We also recognize that animals with poor dental health are often somewhat depressed from the toxins absorbed from their mouth.
The most common and perhaps the most important dental procedure is simply scaling and polishing. For this we have both ultrasonic and high speed cleaning units as well as polishers. Other dental procedures performed include gingival corrections, orthodontics and dental extractions.
