How often should my pet get dental cleanings?
Pets should come in for a full dental exam and cleaning at least once per year. This will allow us to check for any issues and get ahead of them before they cause further harm to your pet’steeth and overall health
Are pets awake during dental cleanings?
No. Pets must be sedated and placed under anesthesia during dental exams and cleanings.This ensures your pet feels no distress or discomfort throughout. Please be wary of establishments offering “cosmetic” or “anesthesia-free” cleanings. They only clean the surface of your pet’s teeth above the gum line. Your pet’s teeth may look clean, but problems are hidden beneath the surface. Always take your pet to a licensed veterinary practice for their dental checkups.
