Pet Dental Care

Ultrasonic equipment is used to remove plaque and tarter from your pet’s teeth then the teeth are polished. Oravet Plaque Prevention Gel (a barrier sealant) can also be applied. When unhealthy teeth are discovered they are extracted to prevent pain and illness. Unhealthy teeth can lead to periodontal disease, heart disease, kidney disease, and liver disease. Regular dental cleanings can help maintain a beautiful smile, fresh breath, and a healthy pet. Pets won’t sit back and open wide so mild sedation is used for this procedure.

In most veterinary clinics dental work is performed by technicians or other support staff, that is NOT the way it is done here. The DOCTOR always performs all dental procedures. All dental patients are admitted between 8:30 am – 9:00 am on the day of the procedure. Food should be withheld on the morning of the procedure. To expedite the admission process you can complete the Dental Consent Form in advance.
