Each patient is given a dental examination in addition to their routine regular examination. Recommendations are made in an effort to prevent dental disease. When preventative measures are no longer enough patients may be scheduled for a routine dental cleaning or in some cases more extensive dental work. Patients are admitted for the day and receive a thorough examination by the veterinarian as well as preanesthetic blood work prior to anesthesia.
Once anesthetized: Patient electronic monitoring includes; ECG, oxygen levels, heart rate, blood pressure, and body temperature. Patients receive intravenous fluids throughout their dental procedure. The teeth are scaled and polished using an ultrasonic dental machine. All instruments are sterile or disposable. The veterinarian performs any necessary extractions. Each patient’s record includes a detailed dental chart. The teeth are sealed with Oravet Sealant and we recommend using Oravet Prevention Gel to decrease future tartar build-up by 50%. Dental health is important for your pet’s overall health.
