This ensures their comfort and safety while allowing us to do a thorough job. Before administering anesthesia, we will conduct a comprehensive exam, which may include bloodwork, to ensure that your pet is healthy enough to safely be anesthetized. Your pet’s condition will be closely monitored while they are asleep, too, to ensure their safety.
While your pet is asleep, we will perform a thorough oral examination. We will also take digital x-rays, which allow us to examine your pet’s teeth below the gumline. By peering beneath the gumline using digital x-ray technology, we can detect problems that are often invisible to the naked eye.
After the exam, we will clean your pet’s teeth and gums using advanced pet dentistry tools. In cases of serious periodontal disease, tooth extractions may be performed, as well. We strive to complete dental services with speed and efficiency to ensure that your pet is under anesthesia for as little time as possible. Their vital signs will be monitored throughout the procedure, and a member of our team will keep a watchful eye on your pet as they recover afterward.
