Pet Dental Health

Studies by the American Veterinary Dental Society report that 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats show signs of oral disease by age three. If left untreated, small dental problems can develop into periodontal disease, can create infection, gum line recession, and lead to tooth loss. Routine dental cleanings and good oral hygiene are just as important for your pet’s dental health as they are for yours!
Some signs of dental problems include:

Dental Cleaning (Scale and Polish)

At Timberline Animal Hospital, because all pets are unique, we will conduct a comprehensive dental examination and create a tailored dental cleaning plan for your pet.  Dental cleanings are performed under general anesthesia for all adult dogs and cats. For more detail about our dental cleaning procedure visit Dental Cleaning 101.

Digital Dental Radiographs (X-Rays)

You would never have dental surgery or extractions without an x-ray, why would your pet? We offer state-of-the art digital dental radiograph services. Digital dental x-rays aid in evaluating your pet’s oral health and detect impacted roots, tumors, devitalized teeth, infected roots and fractures. X-rays also help our medical team detect abnormalities that cannot be seen through the physical examination alone. They can also confirm the need for tooth extraction when teeth are loose or badly infected.

Advanced Dentistry

In addition to dental cleanings, Timberline Animal Hospital offers advanced dentistry procedures for pets.
For more advanced dental issues, we offer the following dental services for our patients:

Treatment of Resorptive Lesions in Cats

Tooth resorption affects up to 75% of cats and is one of the most common and painful feline dental diseases. Tooth resorption is a dental condition where the supporting structures of the root become diseased and cause the destruction of the tooth. The entire tooth structure, root, and crown can be affected and it needs to be treated by a veterinarian. A dental assessment is the first step in diagnosing feline tooth resorption and digital dental radiographs are the second step necessary to diagnose the disease.
