At Tipp City Veterinary Hospital, we do cat and dog dental care differently. Our mission is to help pets live their best life through extraordinary care. To further that goal, our highly trained staff are committed to restoring your pet’s mouth to full health. Dental disease is more than just a cosmetic issue: it injures the liver, kidneys, and heart. In turn, this shortens our cats’ and dogs’ lifespans and hurts their quality of life.
What do we do differently?
A complete physical and oral exam
Firstly, our doctors perform complete physical exams to ensure the health and safety of our patients and create personalized plans. Then, under anesthesia veterinary nurses and doctors perform a complete oral exam. This complete oral exam allows us to identify all visible issues in the mouth.
Safe and comfortable anesthesia
We can’t explain to pet’s what and why we are doing this procedure. Anesthesia provides comfort, safety, and stress relief for your pet for a pain free experience. Dental care can’t happen without it! Rest assured, anesthesia is tailored to your pet and and any medical conditions.
Before anesthesia, blood work allows us to identify any health issues that we can’t see on our physical exam. It also makes anesthesia a safer and more comfortable process.
During anesthesia, all pets are comprehensively monitored by a licensed and well trained professional before and after anesthesia.
Full mouth dental radiographs
Only about a third of the tooth is visible above the gumline! Dental care is not complete without radiographs. They allow identification of any issues below the gumline. We perform radiographs at no additional cost if you schedule your pet’s procedure the same day that a procedure is recommended by a veterinarian.
Restoring your pet’s mouth to a clean and healthy state
Cleaning and polishing restores healthy teeth and gum tissue and freshens pets’ breath by removing unhealthy plaque, tartar, and infection.
Follow up care and consultation
We provide complete updates and instructions; included in the procedure is a discussion of home dental care as well as a complimentary evaluation of healing and progress.
Tooth extractions and surgery
Unfortunately, sometimes tooth extraction is necessary. Removal prevents further decay, infection, and damage; this in turn relieves pain and improves pets’ quality of life. We safely and completely address the problematic teeth.
Tooth extractions range in complexity; some require up to an hour of operation time. We properly close the surgery site, ensuring your pet’s comfort. This will ensure proper healing and prevent quick return of dental disease.
We provide comprehensive pain management including local anesthesia (numbing) and pain medication.
