Teeth Cleaning

Cat and Dog Teeth Cleaning in Naples, FL

Our goal is to prevent dental disease in as many pets as possible by providing lifelong, quality cat and dog teeth cleaning services to Naples and surrounding areas. Pet dental care is a critical aspect of veterinary medicine. Considering that humans need to brush and floss their teeth daily, it should come as no surprise that our pets need daily treatment, too.

Without a daily regimen, plaque and tartar will build up on your pet’s teeth, spread under the gum line and release harmful bacteria. This bacteria can lead to painful, swollen gums (gingivitis) or even dental disease. Dental disease can result in tooth loss, infected gums, or even heart, liver and kidney disease.

Call (239) 513-1777 to schedule a cat or dog teeth cleaning!

How We Help Treat and Prevent Dental Issues

Through daily care at home and routinely-scheduled treatment at our hospital, your pet will have a healthier mouth and a happier, healthier life. Our cat and dog teeth cleaning services include:

  • Comprehensive oral exams, which give our team the opportunity to check your pet’s mouth for loose teeth, infection, abscesses and other issues

  • Digital, full-mouth X-rays to evaluate the teeth and bone below the gum line for underlying damage

  • Thorough dental cleanings with state-of-the-art general anesthesia and monitoring to keep your pet comfortable and safe while we clean and polish their teeth

  • Tooth extractions or mass removals performed if necessary to improve oral health

  • Recommendations for daily, at-home treatment such as teeth brushing, dental chews, or food and treats for controlling tartar

The care you provide for your pet at home has a significant impact. By regularly cleaning away food debris, you’re slowing plaque buildup on your pet’s teeth and keeping harmful bacteria at bay. Professional cleanings at The Animalife Veterinary Center will supplement this daily care and give your pet a cleaner, healthier mouth.

Signs Your Pet Could Have a Dental Health Problem

We pay very close attention to our patients’ dental health and dedicate time to educating our clients so they can anticipate and prevent dental problems altogether.

  • Noticeably bad breath

  • Brownish/yellow teeth

  • Loose or broken teeth

  • Excessive drooling

  • Red, swollen gums

  • Bleeding gums

  • Decreased appetite

  • Dropping food

  • Lack of interest in usual activities
