ABOUT ANESTHESIA-FREE DENTAL CLEANINGS...


It is a safer, more affordable alternative to teeth cleanings done under anesthesia.

ABOUT ANESTHESIA


The American Animal Hospital Association, a very prestigious organization, performed a study titled "Complications and mortality associated with anesthesia in dogs and cats." The results revealed that 1 out of 233 dogs/cats WILL die from anesthesia, 1 out of 9 will suffer from a complication caused by the anesthesia. Pet owners have the right to determine what level of risk is acceptable for them and their pet. Please be advised that some pets require anesthesia for teeth cleaning due to advanced periodontal problems requiring extractions and a deep cleaning of periodontal pockets. This type of cleaning should be followed up with our monthly maintenance program and at home teeth brushing.

 

FAQs ABOUT THE CLEANING PROCEDURE

How Do You Do the Procedure?

Your pet lies on the floor on a dog bed with their head in our lap. With small dogs, we wrap them in a towel to make them feel more secure. We hand scale their teeth with dental instruments just like when you go to your hygienist. The teeth are cleaned inside and out, removing the tartar build up. When we are done scaling we polish the teeth. You receive a report card telling you what we were able to see during the cleaning. When we look at your pet’s mouth if we immediately find problems that need your veterinarian’s attention, example- loose teeth, we will refer you back to your doctor to have a dental under anesthesia and there will be no charge. If during the cleaning we find any problems, we will put the information on your report card so you can discuss any further action with your own veterinarian.

 

Do You Polish Teeth?

Yes, we carefully polish the teeth at the end of the dental cleaning. We use the same product, called prophy paste, that your human dentist uses to polish your teeth.

 

How effective is this method?

There are circumstances where we might not be able to remove all the tartar: Deep Pockets / Root Exposure / Excessive Wiggling. We do not pull teeth and we do not take X-Rays, so we can never see what is going on under the gumline. We are not veterinarians and do not diagnose or treat disease.

 

How Often Should I Come In?


It depends on the breed and the build-up on the teeth. It is usually recommended at least every 6 months to a year. Smaller dogs may even need their teeth cleaned every three months, while some larger dogs may need them done less than once per year. We recommend as soon as you start seeing buildup again to have them re-cleaned. Leaving large amounts of bacteria in your pet’s mouth can lead to other health issues.
