Good oral health is a foundation to a pet’s health and wellbeing. Dental cleanings are done while your pet is under anesthesia so we can clean under the gum line. During the procedure we are able to examine the teeth and identify diseased painful teeth.
We use digital dental x-ray to evaluate the health of each tooth. X-rays are done to find dental disease below the gum line. Dental X-rays must be done under anesthesia. Unlike people we can’t have them hold the x-ray probe in their month and hold still.
