Dental Services at Corfu-Darien Veterinary Clinic

You are a responsible pet owner and you take good care of your pet. But do you always remember to take care of your pet's teeth? Pets have dental diseases and problems just like people do. Regular dental check-ups at Corfu-Darien Veterinary Clinic, combined with good dental hygiene at home, can increase your pet's health, vitality, and well-being and help ensure your pet leads the best life possible.

If left untreated, dental disease can not only be painful and inhibit proper nutrition, it can also lead to serious systemic issues that may threaten your pet's overall health before symptoms are noticeable. For those reasons, our Corfu veterinary team strongly considers dental care an important piece of your dog or cat's preventive health care program.

Dr. Robinson and his staff believe that the centerpiece of good dental care is a complete oral exam followed by a thorough cleaning designed to remove plaque and slow its buildup.

At our veterinary hospital in Corfu, we provide the following dental services:

  • Evaluation of oral health
  • Digital dental x-rays
  • Cleaning & polishing with ultrasonic scalers
  • Tooth extractions
  • Oral surgery for soft tissue masses
  • Dental Services Before Cleaning

Should we find any issues, such as evidence of gum or tooth erosion, gingivitis, or excessive plaque buildup, we will discuss this with you and offer treatment options for your pet.

In Between Cleanings

You can prevent serious dental problems by making sure your pet receives a yearly dental exams. In between visits to your Corfu veterinarian, check your pet's teeth regularly for signs of problems. Brushing your pet's teeth is the single most important procedure you can do to maintain good oral health. If performed regularly, brushing dramatically decreases the incidence of gingivitis and can increase the interval between teeth cleaning appointments.

If you are unsure of how to brush your pet's teeth, please ask a staff member at Corfu-Darien Veterinary Clinic for instructions.
