We offer a full service dental suite for the optimum in dental care for your pet. Part of our dental services is digital dental x-rays to provide us with the most information about the health of your pet's teeth. Dental hygiene is an extremely important part of your pet's health. Bad breath is caused by dental disease and bacteria in their mouth. These bacteria, if left untreated, can lead to tooth decay and serious pain in your pet. The bacteria can also travel throughout the body to organs causing problems. Occasionally, a dental assessment, prophy, and treatment are needed (aka. dental cleaning). The x-rays are the gold standard to show if there is a hiding cavity, or tooth root problem that needs to be addressed to make sure your pet receives the best care possible. So what happens on your pet's dental stay? 1. Your pet will have screening blood work to make sure they can receive tailored anesthesia that is the safest choice for them! 2. After pre-medication, your pet will be placed under a safe gas anesthesia with their vital signs constantly monitored for safety. 3. Our skilled technician will clean your pet's teeth with our modern ultrasonic scaler and polishing system. 4. Our doctor will examine your pet's mouth and teeth, including dental x-rays, to make sure they stay healthy. 5. Your pet will be monitored in our recovery area until they are ready to go home with fresh clean breath and a healthy mouth. Call us today to discuss your pet's dental care.
