Dental Surgery

Our dental cleanings are performed with an ultrasonic cleaning system such as is used by your dental hygienist to clean and polish your teeth. Because we cannot ask our patients to “open wide”, this procedure requires light anesthesia to be performed. We use the anesthesia Life Window pictured on the left of the photo to monitor each patient’s vital signs.

There is mounting evidence that excess tartar build up with age can lead to gingivitis and periodontal disease. If this infection goes untreated, the bacteria in the oral cavity can enter the bloodstream and possibly harm the heart or other organs. The picture at right shows our specifically designed veterinary dental station where all dental cleaning is performed by our licensed veterinary technicians.

Our veterinarians also use this station to perform dental surgery such as tooth repair or extractions.
