A veterinary dental cleaning involves a complete oral exam and dental x-rays to identify problems lurking below the gum line, such as broken teeth, gum disease, and infected teeth. Using these findings, your veterinarian will perform a full cleaning of the teeth and under the gum line. The procedure finishes with scaling and polishing the crown, which helps prevent new plaque and bacteria from adhering to the teeth. Due to the nature of this procedure, it must be performed under anesthesia. We make anesthesia as safe as possible with electronic monitoring. After recovery, nearly all pets are able to go home, eat, and return to their normal lives right away!
