Dental Care for Dogs

Your canine friend’s dental health can be crucial to the quality of life. As dental disease and infection not only affects your dog’s mouth, causes pain, discomfort, and loss of appetite, it can also have a negative effect on their vital organs. Preventative health care is key. The team at Fairview Animal Hospital provides exceptional dental care service to ensure the well-being of your dog.

What types of canine dental care services are offered at your hospital?


We use digital dental radiology (filmless image capture) to assess tooth root structure below the gum line to rule out abscess, absorptive lesions and retained roots. With modern ultrasonic equipment and hand instruments (similar to human dental procedures), each tooth is cleaned thoroughly – above and below the gum line. Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque build-up.

How often should I brush my dog’s teeth?


We promote home care such as dental diets, water additives, and daily brushing of teeth to aid in maintaining your pet’s proper oral health.

Why is oral and dental health important?


Good oral hygiene will contribute to the overall well-being of your canine friend.
