Your four-legged friends need to visit the dentist just like you do. Although home care is the first line of defense when it comes to oral health, some animals (especially cats) aren’t crazy about their owners brushing their teeth.
Be sure to talk to your vet about how often you should bring your furry loved ones in for regular cleanings as well as the home hygiene regimen you should employ. This will prevent dental issues from progressing to larger (and potentially deadly) internal issues.
Here are a few of the many benefits of regular cleanings as well as information about what this procedure involves:
- Remove all tartar and plaque buildup on teeth, under gum line and in hard-to-reach places.
- Complete oral exam checks for lesions, fractures, mobility of teeth and other oral abnormalities.
- Dental Procedure:
- Oral examination
- Before picture
- Dental radiographs (optional, but strongly recommended)
- Cleaning supragingival and subgingival tissues
- Extractions (if needed)
- Polish and rinse
- Laser treatment, if warranted
- Dental sealant (optional, but recommended)
- After picture and at-home treatment plan
We will make sure your pet’s teeth are pearly white! Caring for your pet with these regular cleanings now will save you money in the future.
