Regular dental prophylaxis is very important to maintain your pet's teeth and breath. Gums are rich in blood supply and many infections can travel from gums to various body organs resulting in major body organ malfunctioning and diseases. We use modern and safe ultrasound teeth cleaning technology to clean each tooth thoroughly - above and below the gum line. Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup. Fluoride treatments help strengthen enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity. In addition, Castro Valley Animal Hospital practices advanced dental care and oral surgery.
