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. Once the teeth are cleaned, a thorough oral exam is done to determine if any extractions are needed.
Digital dental x-rays are taken if needed to assess bone and root health and to aid in the extraction process. If there are extractions, we provide pain relief during surgery and when the animal goes home.
