Pet Dental Care
When we examine your pet's teeth and mouth, we look for the following:
When necessary, we may recommend a professional dental cleaning. This includes the removal of harmful tartar and polishing to help prevent decay.
Anesthesia and Pet Dental Care
Pets must be anesthetized in order to clean their teeth properly. To address your concerns about the use of anesthesia during dental procedures, we recommend downloading this educational information: Companion Animal Dental Scaling Without Anesthesia, a position statement from the American Veterinary Dental College.
Pre-anesthesia testing and laboratory work are performed prior to every procedure, and your pet is closely monitored from the initiation of anesthesia through full recovery by a trained anesthetic nurse. The veterinarian may take high-resolution digital dental X-rays for accuracy in diagnosing current and developing problems.
High-speed instruments similar to human dentistry are used to remove plaque from the teeth and polish enamel. In addition, we offer more advanced veterinary dental procedures as needed, such as tooth extractions and oral surgery. State-of-the-art technology and advanced training ensure your pet receives the safest experience available in pet dental care and surgical services.
