Dental disease is a common problem in cats and dogs and can lead to more serious health problems. We perform routine dental cleaning and polishing which can help avoid more complicated dental diseases. All animals need general anesthesia to adequately remove all the tartar, polish and apply fluoride. Full mouth digital dental x-rays are taken to assess bone and root health. Once the teeth are cleaned, a thorough oral exam is done, and x-rays are viewed, the doctor can then determine if any extractions are needed.
If there are extractions, we provide pain relief during surgery and when the animal goes home.
