Dental Cleaning, Digital Dental X-rays & Oral Surgery
The doctors at CAH suggest that you brush your pet's teeth daily using a cat/dog toothpaste. However, even with home brushing, at some point the doctor may recommend a professional dental cleaning. A pet dentistry is exactly the same as one you would receive, except that the pet needs to be anesthetized. Your pet's teeth will be ultrasonically and hand-scaled, the teeth and gums will be probed and charted for lesions, extractions are performed as necessary, then the teeth are polished and fluoride treated. Digital dental x-rays allow rapid radiographic evaluation of your pets teeth while minimizing the anesthetic time required. Dental x-rays allow detection of many otherwise occult painful dental problems.
