Dental Health Clinic

The number one health problem diagnosed in 70-80% of pets over 3 years of age is periodontal disease. We provide one of the most extensive dental care programs to ensure your pet gets the care it needs. Many of your pets dental problems involve the roots and other tissue which are not visible on a regular oral exam.  Routine, proper dental care can add 2-4 years to the life of a pet, and is truly a fountain of youth.

Our Dental Health Clinic offers our clients significant savings on their pets dental needs, but our Premier Pets enjoy the best savings. We are the only clinic in our area to offer this valuable service at such affordable rates.   We take your pet's long term heath seriously, and that is why our Dental Health Clinic is one of the foundations to our Premier Pet Wellness program.

Our Commitment To Your Pet’s Health

The single most common reason severe dental disease effects 70-80% of pets is the cost prohibitive nature of the procedure.  Owners then postpone dental cleanings until the disease has progressed into significant heath issues such as abscessed teeth, loss of teeth, or the pet refuses to eat due to the pain of the severe dental disease.  This is more costly than preventive care, and has significant effects on the pet's over all health.

Here at Premier VetCare, we have made a commitment to reduce the cost of dental care as significantly as possible.  We do this to help owners provide more timely dental prophylaxis in order to reduce the severity of dental disease in the pets we care for.  The design of our treatment area centered around this idea, which has three fully equipped dental tables to accommodate our clients needs.  All of our doctors and our staff are trained and experienced in a multitude of dental procedures and dental prophylaxis.

Common Tooth Fractures

Fractures of the upper carnassial tooth are the most common reason for us to recommend a surgical extraction of a tooth.  There are additional fees associated with surgical extractions due to the greater difficulty and tools required to remove these teeth.  Early intervention by extraction is generally recommended to reduce the pain and the increase risk of developing an abscess tooth that are associated with fractured teeth.  Alternative treatment to extraction is referral to a veterinary dentist for root canal and reconstruction of the tooth.
