Pet Teeth Cleaning
Yearly dental cleanings are recommended under general anesthesia for small dogs over 2 and large dogs/cats over age 3. Due to the prevalence of periodontal disease and other painful oral conditions, these yearly cleanings can help catch early stages of disease. We perform all levels of dental care, including routine cleanings.

Benefits of Teeth Cleaning
- Plaque removal. Tartar (also referred to as calculus) and plaque buildup, both above and below the gum line, can result in serious periodontal problems. Unfortunately, even with a proper home brushing, it can be impossible to remove all debris, bacteria, and deposits from gum pockets. The experienced eye of a dentist using specialized dental equipment is necessary to catch potentially damaging buildup.
- Fresher breath. Bad breath (or halitosis) is generally indicative of advancing periodontal disease. A combination of rotting food particles (possibly below the gum line) and bacteria causing gum infection, results in bad breath. The routine removal of plaque, calculus, and bacteria at our facility can noticeably improve halitosis and reduce infection.
