Regular dental care is essential to helping maintain your pet’s overall health. The mouth has direct routes to the heart, lungs, kidneys, and liver, which is why proper care and cleanings are so important. Tiffany, our technician, has a special interest in dentistry and will accurately and efficiently examine, clean, and polish the mouth during a dental cleaning. The teeth are scaled using a state-of-the-art ultrasonic scaler and then polished to create a smooth, lustrous surface more resistant to plaque build-up. A fluoride treatment is also applied to help strengthen enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity.
Here is an example of how your pet’s teeth can look after they have been cleaned, but remember, the cosmetics of it are just an added bonus!
