We feel that proactive dental care and restoring oral health will have a significant impact on your pet’s overall health, comfort, and lifespan. Remember, oral health begins with an annual oral examination. When needed, we will provide a professional dental cleaning***. This includes a safe anesthetic protocol, removal of tartar, gentle probing of the teeth/gums, and fluoride polishing. If needed dental radiographs, periodontal procedures, oral surgery, orthodontic therapy can be performed to relieve discomfort or treat an infection.
Good oral hygiene starts at home with regular brushings and an appropriate diet. Our technicians can show you how to properly care for your pet’s teeth.
***General anesthesia with intubation is necessary to perform a proper cleaning of the tooth structures. This will protect the lungs from the bacteria that are being removed from the teeth. Anesthetic protocols, regional nerve blocks, fluid therapy, thermal support and patient monitoring are needed to provide patient safety. Moreover, the specific anesthetic agents are selected not only for patient safety but also to allow a complete recovery prior to dismissal. Finally, each dental patient will have a current physical examination, conscious oral examination and pre-anesthetic blood profile.
