Pet Dental Cleanings

Regular dental cleanings are recommended to help keep plaque from building up on your pet’s teeth and turning into Gingivitis.  Pet teeth cleaning procedures are usually simple, effective and generally don’t take more than a few hours from the time you drop off your pet until you can pick him/her back up again.

Your pet will be given a short-term anesthesia while your Vet does an extensive oral exam and cleaning.  Every safety precaution will be taken before and during the anesthesia to ensure your pet’s well being.  Dental Radiographs (X-Rays) may also be taken to completely evaluate your pet’s oral health.  X-rays can detect abnormalities that cannot be seen under regular oral exams alone.  And in some cases they can detect a tooth that may need to be extracted because it is loose or because of infection.

Next your Vet will scale and polish your pet’s teeth.  He will use instruments that are very similiar to ones your dentist uses when you get your teeth cleaned.  He will remove plaque and calcium build up from your pet’s teeth called calculus.  To smooth out any scratches your pet may have, he may use a special tooth enamel polishing paste.  Then the application of anti-plaque substance such as flouride and a barrier sealant is also advised.  Much like our children today who have their healthy teeth sealed to avoid future dental problems.  It can help to strengthen teeth and well as decrease future plaque build up.
