We use human-grade scaling and polishing instruments, oral surgery equipment, and digital dental radiographs (X-rays) so that your pet receives the safest, most thorough dental care possible.
A complete dental procedure includes:
- A complete oral exam. We’ll physically examine your pet’s oral cavity as well as perform digital dental X-rays to identify any problems beneath the gum line. We look for periodontal pockets, abnormal gum tissue, inflammation, oral growths, and other dental issues.
- Thorough scaling (cleaning). We use ultrasonic and hand-scaling to remove plaque and tartar on teeth both above and below the gum line.
- Polishing of each tooth. After scaling, we’ll polish each tooth to smooth the enamel and reduce the amount of future tartar and plaque build-up.
- Extractions/oral surgery. If we detect abnormalities, we may need to perform oral surgery such as a biopsy of abnormal lesions or extraction of a tooth. We will fully discuss your pet’s options with you before we perform any procedure.
- Pain medication when necessary. In the event we need to perform oral surgery, we will provide your pet with pain medication, so they wake from anesthesia with minimal discomfort. Additionally, we may apply an antibiotic gel to encourage healing of the gums.
While we can handle the majority of dental issues during a cleaning, in complex cases, your pet may need to be referred to a veterinary dental specialist.
