Dental disease stands as the most prevalent ailment in today's veterinary field, affecting a staggering 9 out of 10 pets. Regrettably, it remains one of the most undertreated conditions. Pets often endure years of painful gingivitis or even severe tooth root abscesses without displaying noticeable signs to their owners. This silent ailment exerts a significant toll on your pet's vital organs, weakening the liver, kidneys, and heart, thus impacting your pet's overall happiness and potentially reducing their lifespan.
The removal of tartar and treatment of dental disease necessitate the expertise of a veterinary professional and is typically conducted under anesthesia. Depending on your pet's age and health, our doctors may conduct pre-anesthesia blood tests to ensure minimal risk during the procedure. Additionally, your pet will be prescribed antibiotics to be administered several days before and after the dental procedure. Most pets are able to return home on the same day as their dental cleaning procedure.
Consistent professional dental cleaning is pivotal for preserving your pet's oral health. We employ state-of-the-art and safe ultrasound technology to meticulously scale and cleanse each tooth, addressing both above and below the gum line. Our skilled dental technicians also polish the teeth, creating a smooth and glossy tooth surface that is more resistant to plaque buildup, thereby contributing to your pet's long-term dental well-being.
