Cat Dental Care

Maintaining a healthy mouth and teeth is an important part of keeping your pet healthy and happy. At the Airdrie Animal Health Centre, we recognize the importance of feline oral care and want to help you be an active part of your cat’s health. With you as the owner, we work to build positive preventative oral care habits for the long-term maintenance of your cat’s oral health. Our clinic also houses a full-service dental suite, enabling our veterinary professionals to perform full dental cleanings and dental surgeries.

What is involved in a dental cleaning procedure?


At the Airdrie Animal Health Centre, we offer full service dental cleanings which include cleaning, scaling, polishing and dental radiographs. Our dental cleanings are performed under anesthesia to allow us to ensure we can fully provide proper cleaning in your cat’s mouth. During the dental cleaning, our doctors can perform dental surgeries if they are necessary.

What are signs of dental problems in cats?


Dental health issues can present in a variety of different ways. Signs your cat may be suffering from an oral health issue could include refusing to eat, having pain when eating, having inflamed and bleeding gums or having a foul odor to their mouth. If you are concerned that your cat may be suffering from one of these complications, our experienced veterinary professionals can assess your pet’s mouth with an oral exam.

What is feline tooth resorption?


One of the more common oral health complications that cats experience is feline tooth resorption. When this occurs, the root of cats’ teeth resorb, leaving just the crowns behind. This oral health issue can be very painful for your cat and may lead to other problems such as refusal to eat. The causes of feline tooth resorption are unknown and this problem can occur spontaneously. Thankfully our experienced dental surgeons are able to remove these teeth and restore your beloved pet to their healthy, comfortable state.
