Dental Cleaning

Our veterinarians evaluate your pet’s mouth for disease, extract any teeth if necessary, clean and polish the teeth, and can perform minor oral surgery.
A dental cleaning is an important part of general healthcare maintenance for your pet. Pet’s teeth are very similar to human’s teeth and dental disease is very common in pets. Routine dental care is recommended because maintaining good oral health will greatly improve the health and breathe of your pet. Teeth cleaning procedures completed at our hospital, followed by recommended home care treatments, are the best way to ensure the long life of your pet’s teeth.
Your pet is placed under anesthesia while this is being done. This assures that we can perform the necessary procedures safely and completely without damaging the teeth enamel. Our procedure is more than just scraping the tartar off. It may include, but is not limited to; hand and/or ultra sonic cleaning, sub-gingival cleaning, extractions, polishing, application of fluoride and enamel sealant. Medical studies show that pets live longer, healthier and happier lives when they have routine dental care as needed for each individual pet. The teeth are a potential source of life-threatening infection to the heart, liver, and kidneys if periodontal disease develops.
