Veterinary Dentist for Cats and Dogs in Fayetteville

Routine oral health care is a key aspect of your dog or cat's oral and overall health. However, many pets don't actually receive the dental hygiene care they need to help their teeth an d gums stay healthy throughout their life. 

At our veterinary hospital in Fayetteville we provide complete dental care for your pet, from basics such as dental exams, teeth cleanings and polishing, to dental X-Rays and surgeries.

We also offer dental care as part of our Wellness Packages for your pet. With them, we bundle their preventive and dental health care together into convenient monthly payments.

Dental Surgery

We know that discovering your pet requires dental surgery can be a bit overwhelming to most pet parents. Because of this, we strive to make the process as stress-free as possible for both you and your pet. 

We will do everything we can to help make sure your pet's experience while in our care is easy and comfortable. We will explain each step of the surgical process to you in advance of the procedure, including any preparation or post-operative care you will need to provide your pet. 

We offer jaw fracture repair surgeries, tooth extractions, and gum disease treatment for dogs and cats.

Pet Teeth Cleaning & Exams

Just like your annual checkup with the dentist, your cat or dog should come in to our hospital for a dental examination at least once each year. Pets that are liable to develop oral health issues may need to see us more often than that. 

Fayette Veterinary Medical Center can assess, diagnose and treat dental health problems in cats and dogs.

  • Assessment

    We always complete a comprehensive physical assessment for your dog or cat before administering anesthesia for their dental exam.

    We will take blood and urine analyses to ensure it's safe for your pet to undergo anesthesia. Additional diagnostics, such as chest radiographs or an ECG may also be conducted. 

    Once your pet has been placed under anesthesia, we will conduct a comprehensive tooth-by-tooth oral examination.

  • Treatment

    Next, the teeth are cleaned and polished (including under the gum line) and X-Rays are taken. We then apply a fluoride treatment to each tooth. 

    The last step of the process is to apply a dental sealant to your pet's teeth to help prevent plaque from attaching to their enamel. If advanced periodontal disease is found, our vets will develop a treatment plan and walk through it with you. 

  • Prevention

    Ideally, a follow-up examination will be scheduled two weeks after the initial assessment and treatment appointment. 

    During this visit, we will discuss implementing teeth brushing at home. We can also recommend products that can help improve your pet's oral health. 

FAQs About Vet Dental Care

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions from our patients about pet dental care.

Veterinary Dental Services: Anesthesia & Your Pet's Oral Health

Dogs and cats don't understand what is happening during dental procedures. Because of this, they will often react negatively by struggling or biting. 

Similar to the anesthesia provided to nervous or anxious patients by dentists, our vets provide anesthesia to all of our patients before performing dental procedures. This puts less stress on the animals and allows us to X-Ray their mouth as needed.
