What is involved in a dental cleaning procedure?

Let’s begin with an awake oral exam. It will allow the vet to obtain more information, who will deliver findings to you. Once under anesthetic, we perform full mouth radiographs to ensure that your dog’s roots are in good condition. Next, each tooth is graded based on tartar, pocket and gingival health. Based on this assessment, the vet will determine which teeth can stay and which teeth need to go!

Trained veterinarian do extractions (if required with your consent) after local blocks are done. After extractions and cleaning healthy teeth are completed, radiographs are performed again  to confirm extractions were done properly without any remaining parts of the teeth. Our surgery team will scale and polish every remaining tooth. Rinse with an oral antiseptic. Upon recovery, we give post-op pain management and move them into a warm, dry kennel.

What are the signs of dental problems in dogs?

Bad breath, pawing at the face, teeth chattering, and disinterest in eating can all be signs of oral discomfort.

Are some caninebreeds more susceptible than others?

Brachycephalic breeds, small size breeds, are more susceptible to dental disease due to the construction of their face.

What is canine tooth resorption?

Tooth resorption is the erosion of dentin. This condition is irreversible, and the treatment is extraction of the tooth.
