Why does my pet need
Most dental disease occurs below the gum line where we can't see it. Damage may already be occuring even though the teeth look healthy.
Dental radiographs are one of the most important diagnostic tools available to a veterinary dentist. They allow the internal anatomy of the teeth, the roots and the bone that surrounds the roots to be examined.
Prevention of periodontal disease in pets consists of frequent removal of the plaque and tartar that forms on the teeth. Every professional dental cleaning starts with a review of the patient’s general health and any previous dental history.
For a thorough, safe dental cleaning in veterinary patients, anesthesia is essential, as this permits a comprehensive assessment of the tissues, and allows dental radiographs to be made followed by scaling and polishing above and below the gum-line.
