Dental Care

Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet’s teeth! We use modern and safe ultrasound to clean each tooth thoroughly – above and below the gum line. Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup. The veterinarian performs a dental examination and extracts teeth that cannot be safely salvaged. The teeth have a gel applied to help slow the recurrence of tarter build up. Advanced dental procedures such as root canals, caps, and endodontic procedures are referred to a veterinary dental specialist.

Dental treats, chews, pet toothbrushes and toothpastes are also all available for purchase at Riverside to help you keep up your pet’s dental care routine at home!
