Similar to that of people, principals of good oral hygiene and dental health in animals require dental cleanings to remove plaque and tartar. Dental cleanings help prevent gingivitis, periodontitis (inflammation and infection of the ligaments and bones that support the teeth) and other ailments caused by poor oral health as well as pain and discomfort for your pet.
General anesthesia is required for a comprehensive assessment of oral health and a dental cleaning. Our doctors carefully monitor all patients under anesthesia. Our state of the art, Ultima 500 II Dental System™ equipment enables us to perform comprehensive dental procedures quickly and efficiently which minimizes the amount of time a patient is under anesthesia.
