For your pet’s dental care, we can evaluate the needs of your pet and accurately prescribe the appropriate care. At your pet’s yearly examination, it may be determined that a dental cleaning is required.
Routine veterinary dentistry involves prophylaxis (teeth cleaning), polishing and a full oral examination. Dental prophylaxis is performed with your pet under general anesthesia. It involves cleaning the surface of each tooth and scaling below the gum line where food, bacteria, and tartar build up.
To ensure the safety of your pet, pre-operative blood work will be performed prior to the anesthesia. During a dental procedure, we will evaluate your pet's teeth for fractures, cavities, excessive wear, and other abnormalities. We will also examine around your pet's gums to detect periodontal disease.
Digital Dental x-ray is also available with state-of-the-art technology to evaluate the health of your pet's teeth.
