Keep your cat happy and smiling with clean teeth and gums.
Dental health is as important to cats as it is to humans. Poor gum health and tooth decay can impact a cat’s overall health. Swollen gums can lead to gum disease, tooth loss, and inability to eat. They can also be a sign of kidney disease or feline immunodeficiency virus.
Aristokatz provides full dental services, everything from preventative care to oral surgery, if necessary. We are equipped with a state-of-the-art digital dental x-ray machine that we use on every dental patient. This gives us the ability to view the entirety of the teeth, including the roots, and is a crucial piece of equipment when performing any oral surgery in the feline mouth.
Preventative Dental Care:
Cats are known for being some of the cleanest animals around, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need help from their owners when it comes to dental care. Just like humans, cats can suffer from tooth decay and other oral health problems if preventative measures aren’t taken. Bringing your cat in for regular check ups is vital to detect early signs of dental issues before they become more serious. As part of your kitty’s annual exam, we’ll do a quick dental inspection and make any recommendations for additional dental treatments.
Aristokatz Dental Services:
- Full mouth digital x-rays
- Comprehensive teeth cleaning
- Oral surgery for extraction of loose or diseased teeth
- Treatment of stomatitis
- Biopsies of oral tumors
- Management of oral infections

Cat owners are often not able to see or notice dental disease unless there’s obvious rotting.
Some signs your cat may be developing dental problems are:
- Your cat won’t eat or has difficulty chewing food (especially dry)
- Your cat tilts their head to one side while eating
- Bad breath – strong odor
- Bleeding or a dark red line along the gums
- Gum inflammation
- Ulcers on the gums
- Excessive drooling or pawing at the mouth area
