Farmington Animal Hospital adheres to the highest standards of dental care. Your animal will receive full intraoral radiographs as well as a 6 point manual inspection of each tooth.  In cats and dogs, most dental ailments are below the gumline.  Radiographs are used so that everything that needs to be treated can be addressed properly.  Dentals performed without the aid of x-rays are prone to miss up to 30% of the disease present!  Dental procedures are essentially surgery in the mouth, so all dentals receive a full physical, pre-anesthetic blood work, and anesthetic monitoring.
