Comprehensive Pet Dental Care

At Hendersonville Veterinary Hospital, our commitment goes beyond pet dentistry; it’s about elevating the quality of your beloved companion’s life. Our dedicated team of veterinarians is unwavering in their dedication to providing exceptional care that extends far beyond routine dental procedures.

When it comes to getting a cleaning from your vet, the frequency depends on the amount of plaque that has built up on your pet’s teeth – be sure to check often and look for yellow or brown buildup on the gum line. Once you see it, it’s time for a cleaning. If you neglect your pet’s dental care, they can develop periodontal disease, which can get expensive and cause other more serious health issues.

In addition to dental cleanings, we also provide extractions and radiography services. Our doctors make every effort to save teeth when possible. Dental X-rays provide valuable information to the doctor if a tooth’s health is in question. X-rays reveal the condition of not only the tooth’s root but also the supporting bone.

Remember, as a pet parent, you play a significant role in your pet’s dental care. Keep an eye out for signs of yellow or brown buildup on the gum line, and don’t hesitate to reach out for professional dental cleaning when needed. Neglecting dental care can lead to periodontal disease, which can have serious health implications for your pet. Our commitment is to provide your pet with the best dental care available, ensuring they lead a healthy, happy life.
