Dental Care

Keep Your Pet’s Smile Purr-fectly Healthy!

At Orange City Family Animal Care, we know a healthy mouth is essential for your pet’s overall well-being. Our comprehensive pet dental care services, including complete dental exams, cleanings, digital dental X-rays, and tooth extractions, are designed to ensure your beloved companion’s dental health is in top shape.

We prioritize your pet’s comfort and safety throughout the process – our dental procedures are done under general anesthesia to enable our veterinary team to perform thorough assessments and ensure your pet’s safety.

Our Comprehensive Pet Dental Exams

Our pet dental exams are the foundation of our dental care services. Our experienced veterinarian, Dr. Laura Vander Stelt, carefully inspects your pet’s mouth, teeth, gums, and oral tissues during the examination. We use advanced diagnostic tools to detect dental issues like dental decay, gum disease, broken teeth, or oral tumors.

Professional Dental Cleaning

Professional Dental Cleaning

A crucial part of our pet dental care services is professional dental cleaning. Your pet is placed under general anesthesia to ensure their comfort and allow us to perform a thorough, stress-free examination and cleaning. We use specialized dental instruments to remove plaque and tartar buildup from your pet’s teeth, including hard-to-reach areas beneath the gumline.

During the cleaning, we also polish the teeth to create a smooth surface that helps prevent plaque buildup in the future. We take every precaution to ensure your pet’s safety during anesthesia, monitoring their vital signs throughout the procedure.

Careful and Precise Tooth Extractions

In cases where dental disease has progressed and a tooth cannot be saved, tooth extraction may be necessary. Dr. Laura Vander Stelt is skilled in dental extractions and prioritizes your pet’s comfort throughout the process. After the extraction, we provide pain management and guidance on postoperative care to ensure a smooth recovery.

Rapid Results with Digital Pet X-Ray

Digital pet X-rays have revolutionized veterinary diagnostics by offering several advantages over traditional film X-rays. One of the most significant benefits is speed. With digital technology, X-ray images are captured and processed in seconds, allowing veterinarians to view and interpret results almost immediately. This means faster diagnosis and quicker initiation of treatment, reducing stress for both pets and their owners.

Digital Dental X-Rays

Oral health is a vital component of your pet’s overall well-being. Our digital dental X-rays enable us to peer beneath the surface and assess dental health with exceptional clarity. Whether investigating a dental concern, planning a procedure, or conducting routine check-ups, dental X-rays provide invaluable insights into your pet’s oral health, ensuring they maintain a pain-free and healthy smile.
