We offer many options to help keep your pet's teeth clean and gums healthy. A full dental scheduled every 6 to 18 months may be required. This will depend on your pet's degree of gingivitis and periodontitis. Full dentals generally involve anesthesia for a complete oral examination, ultrasonic scaling, polishing and flouride treatment. With some cats, depending on tolerance, we will do what is called a Hand Descale, without anesthesia, and when there is only moderate tartar build-up.
