Dental Cleaning 

Dental cleanings are important to maintain your pet's health. Without cleanings your dog or cat is highly susceptible to tooth loss and nasty infections. 

We clean below the gum-line where bacteria build-up causing periodontal disease. With a machine similar to what your dentist uses, we scale each tooth, removing plaque and tartar from the crown (visible part of the tooth). 

We finish by polishing each tooth so that the surfaces are smooth, making it harder for bacteria and plaque to stick to the teeth. 

This procedure must be done under general anesthetic.
