At Adobe Animal Hospital we recommend and perform anesthetic dentistry procedures on canine and feline patients. Dental disease not only affects your pet’s teeth, but chronic inflammation and bacteria in the mouth can also lead to heart and kidney disease. Hidden dental issues can also cause tremendous discomfort to our pets, and most dogs and cats don’t show pain the way we do.
Our veterinary technicians and veterinarians will perform a basic oral exam during your visit and can make recommendations regarding what type of dental care your pet needs. Sometimes a dentistry is not necessary, and we may recommend increasing at-home dental care. If your pet has significant dental tartar, broken or fractured teeth, or any other oral abnormalities an anesthetic dentistry will likely be recommended to take a closer look at the problem.
What does an anesthetic dentistry involve?
Our dental procedures always include full mouth dental radiographs, ultrasonic cleaning of every surface of every tooth, probing and assessment of problem areas, polishing of each tooth, and a Chlorhexidine oral rinse. Our doctors can also perform tooth extractions and minor oral surgery, when needed.
We will provide your pet with antibiotics and adequate pain relief, if needed.
Please note that Adobe Animal Hospital does not recommend or condone non-anesthetic dentals. These procedures are purely cosmetic and can cause harm to your pet and their teeth. For more information on the dangers of non-anesthetic dentistry, please click HERE
