TYPES OF DENTAL PROCEDURES
1. Gentle Dental (dental cleaning without anesthetic): This dental is indicated for calm pets that will sit with a dental technician without anesthetic and allow dental technician to scale and polish your pet’s teeth. We perform this on Dogs and Cats of all ages. Pet must be friendly and have no signs of loose teeth or major dental disease. This is recommended for pets with minor to moderate tartar build up that DO NOT need any dental extractions.
2. Gentle Dental with Sedative (dental cleaning with sedative): This dental is indicated for anxious, nervous, or aggressive pets that would not hold still for a dental cleaning and polishing. Teeth are scaled and polished while he/she is sedated with an extremely safe and reversible tranquilizer. This is only indicated for pets that DO NOT need any dental extractions, since your pet is not under general anesthesia.
3. Full Anesthetic Dental (dental with general anesthesia): This dental is indicated for pets that have loose and infected teeth or moderate to major dental disease. Teeth are scaled and polished and all loose and infected teeth are extracted while under anesthesia. We use a very high grade anesthetic. We perform an ECG of the heart and blood chemistries prior to all anesthetics to ensure your pet is the best anesthetic candidate!
