Dental Scaling and Polishing
Dental scaling and polishing can improve your pet’s overall well-being and is advised for all pets. Dental health is a vital component that should not be overlooked in caring for our furry mates.
Dental extractions are performed on decayed or fractured teeth that cannot be treated medically. Tooth extractions are also indicated for deciduous teeth (retained teeth), to avoid overcrowding and displacement of teeth growth.
How is a dental extraction performed?
While under general anesthesia, various instruments are used to extract a diseased tooth. Elevators are needed to manipulate and loosen teeth within their respective tooth sockets. Dental burs may be needed to cut bone and teeth. Dental X-rays may be required to assess the integrity of the bone prior to dental extractions
