Goals of Veterinary Dental Treatment at Our Ridgewood and Midland Park Locations

Our beloved pets have many of the same dental issues we do, and we feel strongly that they deserve the same high quality treatments. Our veterinary dental services include:

  • Periodontal (gum) care
  • Treatment for broken teeth
  • Ultrasonic cleaning
  • Halitosis (bad breath) treatment
  • Extraction
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Fluoride treatment
  • High speed dental polishing

Possible Side Effects of Dental Disease

When a pet has dental pain, they may begin to eat less. When this happens, dangerous weight loss can occur. Our goal is to periodically check for dental decay and other issues so they can be addressed before they cause sufficient pain to affect a pet's dietary intake. The bacteria present when a pet has gum disease can also enter the blood stream, affecting the heart, kidneys and liver, and possibly causing serious cardiac disease to present itself. Again, through a commitment to ongoing preventative care for cats, dogs, and all other pets, our Ridgewood and Midland Park veterinary dental teams aim to detect and treat periodontal disease at its earliest possible stages. Veterinary dentistry with our staff is designed to provide for all of a pet's dental needs while at the same time understanding that pets are an important part of the family, and should be kept as comfortable as possible during any form of treatment.
