X-Rays Dental Teeth Cleaning Your Philly Vet Art City Vets Philadelphia

Dentistry

Dentistry is an important component of overall health and quality of life. Our veterinary hospital provides services for routine dental cleaning, as well as more extensive care for extractions and tumor removals.

Veterinary dental disease is often known as a “silent” disease. We at Art City Vets, recommend annual dental examinations and preventative dental cleanings for both dogs and cats. Dental disease can lead to infections, discomfort or pain, decreased quality of life and more serious health issues.

Veterinary Dental Dentistry Philadelphia

DENTAL RADIOGRAPHY is one of the most important diagnostic tools available. It allows us to visualize the internal anatomy of the teeth,  tooth roots, and the bone that surrounds the roots.

Dental x-rays assist in the diagnosis of many hidden conditions that may otherwise go undiagnosed including: fractured or broken roots, cysts, tooth decay, early tumors, or abscessed teeth.

Periodontal disease can be staged and addressed by examining the dental x-rays for bone loss around tooth roots. Please CLICK HERE to read our importance of dental health blog, written by veterinarian and hospital owner, Dr. Edward Aller.

Thorough dental evaluation and xrays are done on anesthetized animals.
