Dentistry with Digital Dental x-ray Facilities
It is important to have your pet’s teeth examined and cleaned on a regular basis to protect their teeth and gums. Our specialized dental services include:
- Ultrasonic scaling
- Fluoride treatment
- Tooth extractions
- Oral surgery
- Endodonics (root canals)
- Digital dental x-rays
All clients are given copies of their pet’s dental x-rays to take home with them.
Dental tartar is firmly adhered to the surface of the teeth. Scaling to remove tartar is accomplished using ultrasonic and sonic power scalers, plus hand instruments that must have a sharp working edge to be used effectively. Even slight head movement by the patient could result in injury to the oral tissues of the patient, and the operator may be bitten when the patient reacts.
