When it is time for a professional dental cleaning, we often take dental x-rays to examine your pet’s mouth under the gum line for signs of infection, disease, fractures, chips, and more. We perform dental cleaning with your pet safely under anesthesia. This entails removal of tartar and plaque buildup on the surfaces of the teeth and below the gum line, as well as extractions of any severely compromised teeth. Studies suggest removing these sources of infection may have a protective effect on the kidneys, heart, and other organ systems. We will provide you with before-and-after images so you can see the extent of the buildup and the changes in your pet’s oral condition after their cleaning.
Why focus on cleanings?If left untreated, your dog or cat’s gingivitis and plaque will worsen over time. Eventually, cavities, gum recession, bacterial infection, loose teeth and root exposure develop. Not only may these problems damage body systems and organs outside of the mouth, but they can be painful and negatively impact your pet’s quality of life.
