Veterinary Dental Services
Veterinary dentistry is a critical component of preventive pet health care. Our Technical Assistants are trained hygienists who have attended advanced veterinary dentistry programs.
Dental disease can lead to pain, tooth loss and bacterial infections from periodontal disease resulting in damage to the heart, and kidneys. More than 85% of dogs and cats over four years of age have some form of periodontal disease.
A professional dental cleaning (dental prophylaxis) with free introductory samples of dental toys, brushes and cleaners will not only give your pet a perfect smile, but it will help ensure a longer, healthier life.
When dental problems and oral diseases are diagnosed, sometimes a dental procedure, such as oral extractions, may be necessary. Veterinary Services of Aiken is equipped with state-of-the-art oral surgical equipment and the latest technology — including digital dental x-rays — to provide your pet with a safe dental procedure.
