before and after cleaning.
Is your pet showing symptoms of gingivitis or periodontal disease?
Do you notice a foul odor coming from your pet's mouth?
Do you notice heavy bleeding from gums during meals?
These could be signs that your pet is in need of a teeth cleaning.
We provide a thorough cleaning and yes we can effectively clean above and below the gum line. It's important to note that all dental scalings are followed up with a machine polish to ensure your pets teeth and gums stay healthier longer.
While most first-time dentals can be completed in less than 30 minutes, some dentals can take up to 45 minutes. There is no recovery time!
We are able to offer a sedative for those pets that exhibit signs of stress or try to bite. The tranquilizer consists of Torbugesic and Xylazine. Your pet will be conscious but very relaxed for approximately 1 to 2 hours. Recovery may take longer for heavier pets.
Though we do not offer anesthetic dentals, we do believe there is a need for them under emergency circumstances such as major oral surgeries due to abscesses, fractured or loose Canines and Molars. Such situations will be evaluated by our on-site DVM and recommendations will be made usually during the initial exam.
*Remember to brush your pet's teeth daily. Daily brushing can reduce plaque and help fight against gingivitis. If you are unsure how to brush your pet's teeth please ask Aaron or Dr. Spade during your visit.
*It is also important to note that the effectiveness of this type of cleaning is based upon your prior commitment to your pets oral health and the after care. Non-anesthetic teeth cleaning is not recommended as a supplement to regular deep cleanings on pets with pre-existing dental issues. However starting with this sort of preventative care early on can significantly reduce likelihood of such instances occurring in the future.
