Your pet’s health will be assessed prior to a dental cleaning with risks identified and addressed with you. During the dental cleaning, your pet will be under anesthesia and monitored closely. A thorough oral exam as well as full-mouth dental X-rays are performed, because pets cannot tell us how their mouth is feeling.  The teeth are scaled and polished, and we remove calculus from the tooth’s surface and under gum lines. Any areas of concern that we detect will be discussed with you along with our recommendations and updated treatment plan costs at the time of the procedure.
