Our veterinarians provide dental services including routine cleaning and polishing (dental prophylaxis), and surgical extractions to manage and treat severe oral disease conditions.
Animal Hospital of the Rockaways is equipped with state-of-the-art oral surgical equipment and the latest technology to provide your pet with a safe dental procedure.
Pet Dental Care
Routine and preventive dental care is vital to your pet's long term health. Pets with poor oral hygiene can develop periodontal disease, which can often lead to heart, lung, and kidney disease.
Animal Hospital of the Rockaways offers a full range of dental services for cats and dogs including dental examinations, dental extractions, and oral surgery as well as home care instructions for keeping your pet's teeth clean and healthy.
Routine Pet Dental Examinations
Our veterinarians perform basic oral exams on all our patients during their comprehensive physical exam. Puppies and kittens will be examined to detect any problems related to the deciduous (baby) teeth, missing or extra teeth, swellings, and oral development. Senior pets will be evaluated for developmental anomalies, the accumulation of plaque and tartar, periodontal disease, and oral tumors.
