Periodontal health affects all the other systems in an animal’s body. Halitosis and gingivitis can be precursors for cardiac and liver issues. We offer full mouth dental cleaning under general anesthesia. Once your pet is anesthetized, the Veterinarian performs a thorough oral exam to check for gingival pocketing, resorptive lesions, and loose teeth. After this is complete & recorded, the teeth may be cleaned.
Dental Cleaning removes plaque & tartar from the enamel of the tooth with an ultrasonic scaler. After the surface of the teeth are cleaned, we polish each tooth with a fluoride paste, and then apply a plaque-preventive substance.
With every Dental Cleaning, you will receive a detailed report card of your pet’s oral health. Call us today at (252) 247-5595 to schedule an appointment.
