Your pet dentist, our vet in Knoxville, removes plaque and tartar from your pet’s teeth, including reaching below the gum line. At this time, overall mouth health is evaluated by our veterinarian in Knoxville TN, to look for signs of dental decay (caries or cavities), broken or cracked teeth, gum disease, oral cancer and more.
