Teeth Cleaning

Preventing plaque and tartar buildup on your pet's teeth is one of the most positive preventative measures you can do for your animals health!  Plaque and tartar buildup lead to gum disease, tooth loss, accesses, jaw degeneration and even HEART DISEASE!  A finger brush or or animal tooth brush can help diminish buildup.   But some pets are predisposed to periodontal degeneration due to genetics.  Dental cleaning is one way to get them back on the right track.  As pets age teeth may need to be extracted, just as with humans.  And some breeds may require two cleanings a year to keep the plaque and tartar under control so it does not negatively influence an existing heart condition

  • Lab work

  • Pain Relief

  • Anestesia

  • Scaling, Radiographs, Polishing

  • Extractions if Needed
