At Arizona Veterinary Dental Specialists, your pet's cleaning includes:
|"Soon my smile will be as big as Dr.Visser's...oh boy, I can't wait!"|
Most pet patients seen in veterinary practice today actually need an annual thorough dental exam and cleaning which includes supragingival and subgingival cleaning, intraoral evaluation, polishing, and further periodontal therapy. A comprehensive pet dental cleaning at Arizona Veterinary Dental Specialists, involves removal of plaque and calculus either with hand instruments, or sonic/ultrasonic instruments above and below the gingival margin, periodontal probing, intra-oral radiographs, charting, and more involved treatment such as deep periodontal therapy or extractions if indicated.
After the initial oral examination is performed, an initial treatment plan is determined. The doctor will discuss different treatment options and the client will be able to decide on a dental treatment plan that best suits their dog or cat. Next, the patient is anesthetized and the initial oral examination is performed before beginning periodontal therapy. After your pet recovers from anesthesia, you will be instructed on how to care for your pet at home.
