Dental Care

show us that smile

At MVVH we are very passionate about your pet's dental care. As the mouth is the gateway to your pet's body, maintaining a healthy mouth is a vital part of managing your pet's overall health and well-being. We have a dedicated dental suite in our hospital housing our surgical and cleaning dental equipment as well as our digital dental x-ray machine. Our veterinarians utilize modern techniques including dental charting, dental x-rays and the use of dental nerve blocks. Pain control and healing are enhanced with the use of PBMT laser as part of our multi-modal approach when treating our patients. Our veterinary technicians are trained to take dental x-rays and to provide dental cleaning utilizing our dental equipment. All pets undergoing a COHAT (Comprehensive Oral Health Assessment and Treatment) at our hospital have a set of full-mouth dental x-rays included in the procedure. Why is this necessary? The simple truth is that important dental issues will be missed if dental x-rays are not performed every time. Important tooth structures are under the gum line that can not be seen with our eyes. Treatment plans are individualized for each patient and we are happy to provide estimates for dental care after an assessment with our veterinarian.
