Dental cleanings start just like yours. An oral exam is performed, full-mouth radiographs are taken, teeth are scaled and polished, and we remove calculus from the tooth’s surface and under gum lines. We then probe the teeth to measure the pockets that exist under the gum lines. If teeth are very unhealthy, we remove them. There is often pain and risk of infection associated with diseased teeth. What we have heard from our clients is that pets seem brighter, eat better, and look happier after a dental cleaning with us!
