Annual professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet’s teeth. We use modern and safe ultrasonic scaling to clean each tooth thoroughly – above and below the gum line.
Dental radiographs are taken to evaluate the tooth root and surrounding bone for evidence of disease. Teeth are polished to create a smooth, lustrous surface more resistant to plaque buildup. Fluoride treatments help strengthen enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity.
OraVet, a plaque preventive gel, is applied to the gingival margin to slow plaque development. All patients receive intravenous fluids and are closely monitored while anesthetized for dental procedures.
