Dental care for your pet at Rogers Animal Hospital
Finding a veterinary dentist near you is important for the overall health and well-being of your pet. Just like humans, pets need regular dental care to maintain healthy teeth and gums. A veterinarian with specialized training in pet dentistry can provide comprehensive dental care for your pet, including regular dental cleanings, x-rays, extractions, and other procedures.
Pet dental cleaning is an important part of maintaining your pet’s oral health. During a dental cleaning, a veterinarian will remove plaque and tartar from your pet’s teeth, as well as polish and fluoride their teeth to help prevent future buildup. Dental x-rays may also be taken to check for any issues below the gumline. If any problems are identified, such as tooth decay or periodontal disease, the veterinarian may recommend additional treatment, such as extractions or root canals.
Veterinary dentists also provide other dental care services such as orthodontics, periodontal therapy, and oral surgery. They also provide guidance on how to maintain good oral health at home, such as regular teeth brushing, dental chews, and dental diets.
Pet dental care is important not just for the health of your pet’s teeth and gums, but also for their overall health. Poor oral health in pets has been linked to heart disease, kidney disease, and other serious health issues. Regular dental cleanings and check-ups can help prevent these issues and can extend your pet’s life.
It’s important to note that dental care for pets is not just limited to dogs and cats, but also for other small animals such as rabbits, ferrets, and birds. These small animals also need regular dental care to maintain good oral health.

Partners in your pet’s oral health
Rogers Animal Hospital uses modern dental equipment that delivers safe ultrasonic teeth scaling above and below the gum line. The dental technicians polish the teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface that is more resistant to plaque buildup. Our doctors will perform tooth extractions (simple or difficult) if they are needed. We recommend annual dentistry for all of our patients. Some patients with serious periodontal disease may require treatments more often. Good dental care, including brushing your pet’s teeth at home, could extend the life of your pet for many years.
