Gentle Touch Animal Hospital in Denver is passionate about your pet’s health, and your pet’s oral care is a key component in their health care program. Our preventive care exam includes a dental check to identify the early signs of dental problems or disease. Untreated dental disease can lead to oral infections, tooth loss, and injury to other vital internal organs.
Pet Dental Services
Gentle Touch Animal Hospital provides dog and cat dental care services including cleaning, dental X-rays, oral surgery, periodontal surgery, and root canal surgery. Your pet’s safety and comfort are important to us. Our pet dental protocols incorporate the latest techniques in veterinary dental care. Your pet will leave our office healthier and happier.
For your pet’s comfort and safety, all dental cleanings are performed under general anesthesia. All patients undergo laboratory testing prior to being anesthetized to ensure their ability to handle anesthesia.
Great care is taken during the cleaning procedure. Your pet is placed on intravenous fluids and we meticulously monitor blood pressure, heart rate, heart rhythm, and blood oxygen levels. If extractions are necessary, we utilize pre- and post-extraction digital X-ray technology to ensure the extraction procedure was performed properly. Pre and post-operative pain management is utilized when necessary.
Our compassionate staff continues to monitor your pet throughout their recovery period, and we use an anesthetic protocol that allows for a very quick recovery. Before your pet is discharged, we will carefully explain any post-operative care instructions, and any necessary prescription medications can be filled at our onsite veterinary pharmacy.
Pet Dental Care
In addition to regular veterinary dental care, we recommend continuing a dental care program at home. There is a wide variety of dental care options to assist you.
We are happy to discuss all of the dental tools and techniques such as:
- Dental diets
- Dental chews
- Plaque prevention gel

Gentle Touch Animal Hospital is committed to providing outstanding pet dentistry to cats and dogs in a fear-free environment. Please contact us to schedule an appointment, or to answer any of your questions regarding your pet’s dental health.
