Did you know, it is estimated that around 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats more than three-years old have some form of dental disease? Even though pets are extremely well taken care of, the number of those suffering from dental disease is astonishing. We believe the disease is so prevalent because owners don’t understand the importance of good dental health. Pay attention to your dog or cat.
Discolored teeth, bad breath, and even difficulty eating are common signs of dental disease. You may see blood in your pet’s mouth. If you see them pawing at their mouth or making painful noises when they chew, or rubbing their face against an object, these could be signs of oral problems that should be looked at by our veterinarian.
As stated, regular pet wellness exams with our veterinarians is very important for great pet dental health. Early detection is essential in case something is developing within the mouth that needs to be addressed. Your veterinarian need to do a professional dental cleaning under anesthesia for your pet. We clean your pet’s teeth the same way your dentist cleans your teeth; therefore when your pet is put under anesthesia, we can even get underneath the gums and in other hard-to-reach places.
We offer dental packages which include the most advanced techniques in dentistry and anesthesia, including:
- Pre-anesthetic sedative to allow for comfortable IV catheter placement and anesthetic induction
- General anesthesia is maintained and monitored by a licensed technician IV catheter with fluid administration during anesthesia and throughout recovery. This allows for a safer, more stable plane of anesthesia as well as a safer, smoother recovery
- Trained dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup
- Fluoride treatments to help strengthen enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity
- Antibiotic injection to treat/prevent infection
- Digital dental x-rays (when indicated) to further determine the health of a pet’s teeth and whether extractions are needed.
- Pain injection for patients with more advanced dental disease to prevent sensitivity/pain associated with the cleaning and/or tooth extractions.
- Extractions (only when indicated by x-ray findings). Most extractions are actually considered surgical procedures. They may require a surgical incision to expose tooth roots and allow for easy sectioning and extraction of each individual root
