Dedicated dental suite & digital X-rays
At Molesey Vets, we have a state-of-the-art dedicated dental suite and the latest pet dentistry equipment to take care of your pet’s oral health, including digital dental x-ray, ultrasonic descalers and dental polishing machines.
Your pet won’t need to go anywhere else as we offer a wide range of dental procedures on-site in East Molesey.
Professional pet dental care
Your pet’s teeth and gums will likely need professional dental care a few times in their life. They eat, chew, and play using their mouths, so there’s a lot of ‘wear and tear’. A professional scale & polish will remove the nasty build-up of plaque and tartar that can lead to dental disease, and bring back the shine on those pearly whites.
Sometimes, cats and dogs especially, need more extensive veterinary dental treatments including tooth extractions and root canal work. Rabbits and some small furries have teeth that grow continuously. When they become overgrown (usually a good fibrous diet is enough to stop this) or misshapen, our Vet Dentists have the equipment to file down and remove spurs. Sometimes teeth may need to be trimmed or removed under general anaesthetic.
We have invested in the latest equipment so that we can provide up-to-the-minute dental treatments for your pet. Our hand-held digital X-ray machine produces high-quality, detailed dental radiographs which are essential for diagnosing serious dental issues. Digital X-rays are taken with a very safe amount of radiation. Using these, our Vet Dentists are able to spot cavities in your pet’s teeth and check the health of the tooth and surrounding bone.
Preventative oral healthcare
Most cases of pet dental disease can be prevented, or at least minimised. This can be achieved through a combination of regular home dental care, routine annual Vet Dentist checkups, and some professional intervention when needed.
Our experienced Registered Veterinary Nurses will be happy to show you how to clean your pet’s teeth at home, and talk you through the products available. Book a nurse appointment.
