Mobile Veterinary Dental Care
The condition of your pet’s teeth and gums is an important indicator of their overall health. Poor oral hygiene causes more than just bad breath—tooth loss, gingivitis, and periodontal disease can significantly impact your cat or dog’s quality of life. Mountain Mobile Veterinary Hospital brings comprehensive pet dental care right to you with our state-of-the-art mobile dental suite.
Pets are experts when it comes to hiding pain. Although this is a natural survival instinct, it can cause long-term oral health complications. Dr. Felz recommends a dental exam at least once a year for pets in order to quickly identify any hidden signs of dental disease. If your pet has a history of dental issues, we suggest more frequent checkups to make sure there are no recurring problems.
At Mountain Mobile, we offer a broad variety of pet dentistry services:
- Complete oral exam of teeth, gums, and oral cavity—recommended once a year at a minimum.
- Dental cleaning—A thorough cleaning involves using an ultrasonic cleaner to rid the teeth of plaque and tarter both on the tooth surface and more importantly below the gumline, followed by polishing to a bright white shine. All dental procedures will include complete dental x-ray and will be performed under anesthesia so your pet care receive safe, complete, and thorough care.
- Digital dental x-ray—Dr. Felz’s mobile dental suite comes equipped with the latest in digital radiography to provide high-quality images of the mouth and teeth.
- Bonding sealants—to protect fractured or broken teeth.
- Ultrasonic scaling and polishing allows for faster cleaning of your pet’s teeth above and below the gum line.
- Oral surgery—Dr. Felz has extensive dental experience and provides tooth extraction, mass/tumor removal, oronasal fistula and palate defect correction, as well as surgery of the tongue, lips, and gums.
Periodontal disease is a serious medical condition that can destroy your pet’s teeth, gum tissue, and bone structures if left untreated. Daily brushing at home helps minimize bacteria, and when combined with consistent veterinary dental care, is the best way to keep your pet safe from this irreversible oral disease.
