About Our Pet Dental Services
Borrett Animal Hospital provides pet dental services in the Ogden area. We have an up to date dental suite where full dental radiographs can be taken. The same monitoring equipment that is in our surgery room is also in our dental suite. We perform complete exams where teeth are cleaned, polished, and treated with fluoride.
Pet Dentistry Procedures
Our dental services for your pets include basic dental cleanings and extractions, as well as x-rays. If you are in need of dentistry for your pet, contact us today! We would love to help.
Digital Dental X-Rays
A radiograph is an essential first step to evaluate the tooth and confirm whether or not the root is intact or diseased. In the last year we have transitioned to a digital dental x-rays system. While we have always provided dental x-rays, until now they have been in the traditional film format. The digital x-rays provide a much higher quality image and have greatly increased our ability to treat dental disease appropriately.
The upgrade to digital allows us to attach the images to the digital patient file in our system so that these images can be viewed by the doctor on any workstation in the hospital. We also have the capability to email these images to our clients or other hospitals should the need arise.
Another benefit of the digital x-ray system is that it has shortened the amount of time that is needed under anesthesia because the images are available immediately and we no longer have to spend time developing the films by hand.
*Quality dental care is vital to older animals as periodontal disease can have more than just an effect on appetite. Periodontal disease can contribute to problems involving areas including the heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys.
