If untreated gum disease can lead to serious damage to your pet’s vital organs so it is vital to keep a check on their teeth with regular dental appointments.

The buildup of plaque and tartar on your pet’s teeth can lead to infection in the gums and roots, which is why it is important to get them checked.

Here at Clifton Lodge we offer routine dental procedures, cleaning and extractions where necessary. Members of our Pet Health Club get a 10% discount.Our Hartlepool and Horden surgeries have new dental facilities for any procedures you pet may require.

Scaling tartar from the teeth and polishing the surfaces will get the mouth back to almost new as long as no extractions are necessary.

We are now able to see below the gum line at Hartlepool with our new dental x-ray machine. This allows us to pick up issues sooner and decide better which teeth need treatment.

Loose teeth and any with infected roots should be removed, as should teeth with significant feline ondontoclastic resorption lesions (FORLs) in cats.

If you have concerns, make an appointment with us so we can talk about the best dental care and treatment for your pet.
