Feline Dental Health

Did you know periodontal disease is the most frequently diagnosed health problem for cats? By the age three, 70% of cats have visible tartar and gingivitis.


Proper dental care helps cats maintain more than a nice smile and fresh breath: tooth and gum disease in cats is painful and may lead to other serious health problems, such as heart and kidney disease. Preventive care is key -- brushing your cat's teeth on a regular basis and having annual cleanings is one of the most important things you can do to help prevent dental disease and keep your cat healthy and happy.

Feline Medical Center offers a full dental examination and prophylaxis (cleaning). Under gentle gas anesthesia, the mouth, teeth and gums are examined.  Each tooth is scaled (tartar and plaque removed), cleaned, and polished. Full mouth radiographs (x-rays) are done to examine each individual tooth root and check for disease not often apparent by just looking in the mouth.  Any badly infected/decayed or broken teeth are extracted by our veterinarians. Pain control medication is used with every procedure and most are performed on an outpatient basis so your cat will go home the same day.  

Having this procedure done is important in helping your cat maintain a healthy life!

At Feline Medical Center, we expertly perform complete dental cleanings. Our dental radiograph (x-ray) unit has significantly improved our ability to identify fractured and abscessed teeth and the presence of tooth-root disease, thereby allowing earlier, easier (and less costly) treatments.

National Pet Dental Month
We are proud to participate in the annual National Pet Dental Awareness month each February by offering discounts on dental cleanings to our clients. In addition, we provide clients with a year-round discount if the cat has had a dental performed in the previous 18 months.
